Spark 1.2 and Beyond

Next week I’ll be hosting a webcast with Spark’s release manager – and Databricks co-founder – Patrick Wendell. (Full disclosure: I’m an advisor to Databricks.)

In this webcast, Patrick Wendell from Databricks will be speaking about Spark’s new 1.2 release. Spark 1.2 brings performance and usability improvements in Spark’s core engine, a major new API for MLlib, expanded ML support in Python, and a fully H/A mode in Spark Streaming, along with several other features. The talk will outline what’s new in Spark 1.2 and leave plenty of time for Q and A about the release or about Spark in general.

We’ll be debuting a new Spark track at the forthcoming Strata+Hadoop World in San Jose. We’re also offering a 3-day Advanced Spark training course, a one day hands-on tutorial (Spark Camp), and the Databricks/O’Reilly Spark developer certification exam.
