Apache Spark is currently one of the hottest technologies in data science. That trend leads the Spark Summit 2015 to be one of the top conferences. Luckily, the conference organizers where kind enough to set up a free Spark Summit 2015 Livestream of the event. Here is a small glimpse of what will be covered:
- Updates from Matei Zaharia, creator of Spark
- Spark at NASA
- Innovation with Spark
- Three tracks of talks:
- Data Science
- And much, much more
The livestream begins today, June 15, 2015, and continues through Wednesday. It appears keynotes and all three tracks will be available via livestream. If you cannot physically make the event, then this is probably the next best thing.
