Introduction to Apache Spark for Enterprise Architects
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. WALK-INS WELCOME. NON-SVFORUM MEMBERS (including rsvps on meetup) - $20 AT THE DOOR.
Apache Spark is one of the most exciting and talked about ASF projects today, but how should enterprise architects view it, and what type of impact might it have on our platforms? This talk will introduce Spark and its core concepts, the ecosystem of services on top of it, types of problems it can solve, similarities and differences from Hadoop, deployment topologies, and possible uses in enterprise. Concepts will be illustrated with a variety of demos covering: the programming model, the development experience, “realistic” infrastructure simulation with local virtual deployments, and Spark cluster monitoring tools.
