Details

How would you apply an algorithm over hundreds of million data points?

How would you scale your existing code to run over 1,000 nodes?

Please join us for today’s meetup on “Distributed Computing with Apache Spark” to find out how modern cluster computing frameworks can fundamentally change the performance and scalability characteristics of cloud software. In this talk, we’ll see how these frameworks work and how you can harness their power to solve business problems involving large amounts of data or drastic reduction in algorithm completion time.
