Introducing Java/Hadoop Developers to Scala/Spark

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past several years, a variety of education and training programs have taught Java developers how to solve big data problems using the Hadoop MapReduce framework. With the addition of the Spark in-memory processing paradigm, and the associated attractive Scala API, these developers now face the dual challenge of a new programming language and paradigm. In this talk, I will discuss the basic issues faced in this transition, discussing both concepts that carry over and new ones encountered, along with a suggested roadmap for learning these two technologies.
