I’m pleased to report that I was asked to moderate an upcoming Apache Spark panel discussion organized by the Los Angeles Apache Spark User Group. The event is hosted by Cross Campus in Santa Monica, a collaborative work environment that’s home to over 100 start-up tech companies. The event will be a rare opportunity to see a number of leading vendors on one panel, hear from their experts, and get their insight on best practices, real use cases, and solutions around Spark implementation. Scheduled for participation are: Cloudera, MapR, and Pivotal. I’m really looking forward to this evening event.
UPDATE! 10/3/2014 – The Spark panel event went off without a hitch. Here are the happy participants:
