I’m looking forward to educating a number of members in the Boulder data community on Apache Spark -- Paco Nathan, Director Community Evangelism, Databricks
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
On Friday, April 24, 2015, Databricks’ Director of Community Evangelism, Paco Nathan, will brief BBBT members on the use of Databricks Cloud, a hosted end-to-end data platform powered by Apache Spark. The session will cover cloud-based notebooks using Apache Spark with Scala, Python, and SQL, including a brief introduction and history of Spark, and where it fits within the landscape of Open Source frameworks for Big Data.
“I’m looking forward to educating a number of members in the Boulder data community on Apache Spark. It’s become one of the most popular open source projects today,” said Paco Nathan. “The more Databricks can do to show Spark has a hub of innovation and opportunity with speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics, the better.”
“Spark has become the darling of open source Big Data aficionados. It has one of the largest open source communities in this area, with Databricks contributing significantly to maintain its momentum. Add cloud to the mix and you get a very compelling story,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “I look forward to hearing more about this combination from Paco Nathan - their Community Evangelist.”
