  • Introduction to Scala + Spark

    Online event

    About three months ago, I leapt from the world of .NET into the world of data science with Apache Spark; and I want to share with you my experiences thus far. Come hang out and get a "things I think are important to know, coming from just a couple months of on-the-job use" talk from Eve Ragins, a local developer, consultant, and . Some of what I will cover are: * For Scala: the philosophy, related tools, and staples of the language * For Spark: what it is, core concepts, how it works, how to easily get your feet wet, and some challenges I've ran into and tips to overcome them. Please note: While machine learning is new and cool and awesome and Apache Spark supports many algorithms out of the box, it will not be part of this talk beyond an honorable mention. -------------------------- This meetup will be online. The zoom link will be posted in our Slack the night of the meetup. Be sure to join us on Slack and be a part of the conversation and hang out with other local developers!
