Trends and Adoption: What's Hot in Apache Spark

With Dean Wampler, Ph.D., Office of the CTO and Big Data Architect, Lightbend, Inc.

Last month, we ran a survey to assess the Apache Spark ecosystem trends and adoption. More than 2,000 respondents shared their thoughts, resulting in some interesting findings in areas such as: 

  • Key problems developers are trying to solve using Spark
  • Top barriers to Spark adoption
  • Spark’s role in enterprise Big Data

In this webinar resident Big Data expert, Dean Wampler, will present the surveys findings and discuss why JVM devs should care even a little about Big Data tooling in 2015.
