Apache Spark is a modern open source cluster computing platform. It is helping data scientists analyze and explore large datasets more effectively than ever before, in terms of both software development productivity and efficient use of hardware, scaling from on-premises clusters to on-demand cloud computing.

Come see examples of Spark at work on scientific datasets, and learn how the largest open source project in data processing can help unify a variety of tasks, including machine learning, streaming data and SQL queries, using Python, Scala Java or R.
