About This White Paper

In the middle of 2014, when we were reporting the results of a Java 8 Survey in which more than 3000 developers participated, we saw something we didn't expect: 17% of respondents reporting using Apache Spark in production. There must be more to this, we thought...

To learn more about how developers are using (or planning to use) Spark, we formed a group between Lightbend, Databricks and DZone to sponsor a survey of more than 2,000 (2,136 to be exact) respondents. Their responses paint a promising and exciting picture for Spark adoption. We think of this next wave as Reactive Big Data. But whatever you call it, it’s already here.
