How LinkedIn Uses Scalding for Data Driven Product Development

One cannot be competitive on the Internet today without Big Data. Companies are increasingly basing product decisions on data which in turn feeds more data into the system and increasingly sophisticated tools are required to make good use of this data.

Join Sasha Ovsankin, Staff Engineer at LinkedIn, to learn how Scalding is used to power data pipelines for some the biggest messaging operations at LinkedIn to make them smarter and more personalized. Scalding is a Scala Domain-Specific Language (DSL) for Hadoop development built on top of Cascading.

This talk will be hosted at LinkedIn's offices in Mountain View. Food and drink will be provided.
