Thank you for being a part of the Apache Spark community.
Last December, over 450 Spark users from 180 companies and 13 countries came together at the first Spark Summit. The Summit was a 2-day event that started off with a full day of presentations from 30 different Spark users and developers. On the second day, we sold out our Spark training with 200 participants. This showed us just how active and enthusiastic the Spark community is. With this in mind we have been planning the next Spark Summit.
Spark Summit 2014 will be held in downtown San Francisco from June 30 - July 2. We have expanded our agenda to contain 2 days of presentations followed by our most ambitious Spark training program yet.
With all the new space in our agenda, we are calling on our community to step up. We want to hear about what you have been up to and get a glimpse at all the exciting projects that involve Spark and Spark-related technologies.
The call for submissions for Spark Summit 2014 is now open. Please visit our submissions page to submit an abstract or two. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 11.
As always, we love feedback from our community. If you have any feedback please let us know your thoughts.
