The speaker lineup for the next Spark Meetup is fixed, and this time we have only local speakers from Vienna!

First Christoph Körner (, will talk about Oozie and GraphX. After that, since nobody else replied to the Call for Talks, I decided to give a talk myself about something I've been recently working with: various libraries for DataFrames. These are the abstracts for the talks:

Using Oozie to schedule GraphX Jobs in Spark (Christoph Körner)

After a quick intro to Apache Oozie (a workflow scheduler for Hadoop) and GraphX in Spark, I will show how it can be used to automatically schedule Graph computations using GraphX in an Hadoop environment.

Data Science with Python - a comparison of DataFrames in Pandas, Spark and GraphLab Create (Bogdan Pirvu)

After a brief introduction to Spark and GraphLab Create I'll explain the DataFrame concept. Then I'll showcase the common features and differences between DataFrames in Spark, Pandas and GraphLab Create during a life demo. I'll finish with the pros and cons that I have experienced and conclude with my current personal preference.


19:00 - Start with some drinks and chatting

19:15 - "Using Oozie to schedule GraphX Jobs in Spark" (Christoph Körner)
