Monthly Hackathon

  • Feb 6, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • T4G

Let's get together and bang some technology around. I'll try to find us a location during the day or early evening to sit down with laptops and whiteboards and work on some interesting problems or new technologies. 

Some things I would suggest (and will participate in):
- Facebook Presto tire-kicking
- Storm and Trident use cases (near-real-time recommendation systems)
- LinkedIn Databus running in YARN
- Spark and/or Spark Streaming on YARN
- ?

Feel free to add to the list....

Let us know what you want to work on in the comments.

This is a chance for hands-on folks to huddle up and try things out.

Looking for a location.

    Really wanted to come along to this but am being sent away to a conference. Does anyone know of any Big Data conferences in Toronto this year? Thanks

      I went to the Big Data Innovation Summit last year in Toronto: http://theinnovatione...­ The speakers were great, there were really good opportunities to actually talk to people and ask questions. Also the speakers were industry professionals and not vendors which made a change.

    I think Cloudera was doing something with Spark and Spark Streaming so maybe they could drop by. Added to the list as per Edwin's request.

      I don't think they have anything yet. They recently announced a partnership with Data Bricks which is commercializing the work done at Amp Labs.
