Houston Hadoop Meetup - Marco Vasquez presents Apache Spark
Invited speaker Marco Vasques told the group about his work as Data Scientist at MapR, and his use of Spark for this purpose. Thanks to YARN in Hadoop 2, Spark has become a part of every major distribution, either as a release or as early preview.
The group was quite technical and asked a lot of detailed questions. Thanks to everyone, and to MapR for sponsoring the pizza and drinks.
