This month we have a talk about Arrow and Rust for distributed computing.

Thank you to EcoHealth Alliance for providing the Zoom link.

Conversation during the meetup are encouraged in the Zoom chat and on the nyhackr slack.

About the Talk:
Andy will give an overview of Apache Arrow and the DataFusion query engine and explain how he is using these building blocks to implement Ballista, which is a distributed compute platform.

About Andy:
Andy Grove is a PMC member of Apache Arrow, where he donated the initial Rust implementation, and later donated DataFusion, an in-memory SQL/DataFrame query engine.

The talk will begin at 7 PM EST and we will start admitting people to the event shortly before. Since this is completely remote there will be no pizza but everyone is encouraged to have pizza individually.
