Workshops at Data Day Seattle

We are in the process of scheduling a variety of workshops to be held during Data Day. Most of these will be two hour hands-on sessions in a classroom environment. These are the the workshops confirmed so far:

NEW Data Pipelines with Kafka and Spark

John Akred, Stephen O'Sullivan, and Mark Mims of Silicon Valley Data Science will lead this workshop.

Spark and Kafka have emerged as a core part of distributed data processing pipelines. This tutorial will explain how Spark, Kafka and rest of the big data ecosystem fit together in production to create a data platform supporting batch, interactive, and real-time analytical workloads. By examining use cases and architectures, we’ll trace the flow of data from source to output, and explore the options and considerations for each stage of the pipeline.
