Bring your Laptop - Programming for Big Data


Hey all,

Could everybody please bring their laptops for Wednesday's the 6th's Programming for Big Dat class? We will look at Spark - which is an advance on in-memory map-reduce - and I would like everybody to have a copy of the binary on their computer so you can play around with it.

In later classes, we may use the data-bricks (maker of Spark) academy but for the first lab we will use out own laptops.

ALSO THIS IS NOT AN APRILS FOOLS JOKE

Thanks,

Rgds,
