Thefirst part of the two-part series will kick off with talks on Spark, Spark Streaming and Shark. We will then highlight three new components of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS). We’ll start with BlinkDB, an approximate query engine for running interactive SQL queries on large volumes of data. Second up will be MLBase, a platform for implementing and consuming machine learning algorithms at scale. Then Tachyon, a fault tolerant distributed in-memory file system.
Later in the day we will hosthands-on training covering basic Spark, Shark and these new BDAS components. Each member of the training will be provided with access to their own EC2 cluster pre-loaded with datasets that they can use to run exercises utilizing these new technologies.
