This talk takes the audience through a brief history of music recommendation pipelines at Spotify. We'll present how we moved from a mostly Python shop to mostly Scala for data science, the lessons learned, and where we are going next. We'll also dig a bit into the technical details of scaling music recommendation algorithms in Scala.
