Out of the battle of big data frameworks Apache Spark is coming out as the main unified open-source platform for scalable data processing/ETL and machine learning both in batch and real-time and is helping bridge the gap between agile data science and production-level data engineering.
We would like to bring together and expand the Spark community in Prague. We plan to organize this as a roughly 2-monthly meetup with a mix of the following topics: - Introduction to Spark and zoom-in on it’s individual aspects such as data processing, machine learning, streaming, graph analytics, etc. - Presentation of real-life use cases and experience by Spark users (companies such as Socialbakers, Ceska sporitelna, Moneta or Barclays) - New developments in the Apache Spark project freshly from the source at Databricks
Come join us if you would like to find out how Spark works and what it’s useful for, hear members of the community present their interesting data science and data engineering use cases and network with like minded people.
