  • This is the Title slide.
    Please use the name of the presentation that was used in the abstract submission.

  • - UDFs, custom duct tape for registering and finding dependencies, separate files
    - separate files, testing?, error handling
    - things that you didn’t think were possible become idiomatic. compose queries, parameterize, pass queries and operations around









  • This is the final slide; generally for questions at the end of the talk.
    Please post your contact information here.

Transcript

  • 1. Cascalog: an Interactive Query Language for Hadoop Nathan Marz BackType
  • 2. What is Cascalog? Cascading (the job execution engine) + Datalog (basis of the API design) + Clojure (the host programming language)
  • 3. Why another query language for Hadoop? Existing tools cause too much Accidental Complexity
  • 4. Accidental complexity Complexity caused by the tool used to solve a problem rather than the problem itself
  • 5. Accidental complexity in existing tools Pig The query language is different than the programming language Hive
  • 6. When query tool is separate from programming language  Friction when embedding custom operations  Interlacing queries with regular application logic is unnatural  Generating queries dynamically is difficult
  • 7. Clojure  General purpose programming language  Dialect of Lisp that compiles to Java bytecode  “Programmable programming language”: Easy to build Domain Specific Languages (DSL) in Clojure
  • 8. Clojure examples Clojure code Result (+ 1 2 3) 6 (> 20 18) true (defn incr [x] (+ 1 x)) 4 (incr 3)
  • 9. Cascalog Domain Specific Language in Clojure for processing data using Hadoop
  • 10. Cascalog Full power of a general purpose programming language available at all times
  • 11. Cascalog Full power of a general purpose programming language available at all times Cascalog is a Clojure library Example query: (?<- (stdout) [?p ?a] (age ?p 25))
  • 12. Demo time!
  • 13. Some of Cascalog’s features  Inner and outer joins  Aggregators  Functions  Subqueries  Sorting  Read from and write to arbitrary data sources › HDFS › HBase › MySQL › Etc.
  • 14. When query tool is separate from programming language  Friction when embedding custom operations  Interlacing queries with regular application logic is unnatural  Generating queries dynamically is difficult
  • 15. Cascalog, on the other hand...  Custom operations defined just like any other function  Interlacing queries with regular application logic is trivial  Generating queries dynamically is easy and idiomatic
  • 16. Try Cascalog yourself! Project Page http://www.github.com/nathanmarz/cascalog Introductory Tutorial http://nathanmarz.com/blog/introducing- cascalog/ 5 minutes to install Clojure, Hadoop, and Cascalog locally! See project README
  • 17. Questions? Twitter: @nathanmarz Email: nathan.marz@gmail.com
  • 18. More benefits to being Clojure DSL  Excellent module system  Interactive REPL  Make use of any Clojure function in queries
