Apache® Spark™ is a powerful open source processing engine built around speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics. It was started at UC Berkeley in 2009 and is now developed at the vendor-independent Apache Software Foundation. Since its release, Spark has seen rapid adoption by enterprises across a wide range of industries. Internet powerhouses such as Yahoo, eBay and Netflix have deployed Spark at massive scale, processing multiple petabytes of data on clusters of over 8,000 nodes. Apache Spark has also become the largest open source community in big data, with over 1000 contributors from 250+ organizations.

Spark Summit will feature 1-day and 2-day trainings. These courses are designed to help introduce or cultivate your knowledge around Apache Spark and data science.

At the conference, attendees will hear from top talent in the Apache Spark community, discover where development is headed, and learn how to use Spark in a variety of applications. Each year thousands of developers, data scientists, researchers, business leaders and analysts are expected to participate. Sign up to be part of the largest big data event dedicated to Apache Spark.
