In this edition of Hackers' Avenue, we would like to reach out to the women in the tech community.
We are hosting a Workshop on Apache Spark by Matild Reema. She is a Software Engineer at Indix and is a part of the core team that built our data platform on Apache Spark.
Indix has used Spark to build a self service platform that has helped democratise access to several datasets at Indix to customers and the internal engineering and data science teams. We started using Spark well before its 1.0 release with mixed success but over the last couple of years, it has become the framework of choice for building data pipelines at Indix.
Attendees are requested to bring their laptops with Java, Scala and Apache Spark installed. Follow the links for the installation steps for Ubuntu ( https://medium.com/@josemarcialportilla/installing-scala-and-spark-on-ubuntu-5665ee4b62b1 ) and Windows ( http://nishutayaltech.blogspot.in/2015/04/how-to-run-apache-spark-on-windows7-in.html ) users.
