ABSTRACT: Real Time Analytics with Spark Streaming
Monetate runs a lambda architecture for data analytics. This talk will cover the components of a lambda architecture, and the critical role played by Spark. We’ll cover the basics of Spark, and how it enables sophisticated machine learning algorithms to run in real-time at scale. I hope to conclude the talk with a religious debate: Scala vs Python vs Java. (on Spark)
