Those slides were used for NC Tech's lunch and learn on Aug. 22 2018. This lunch and learn, hosted by Veracity Solutions, you will learn how Spark can help your business build a pragmatic technology roadmap to AI (Artificial Intelligence), Machine Learning, and Big Data analytics. Apache Spark is a wonderful platform for distributed data processing and analytics, but how is it used by different organizations? How difficult is it to on-board a team, what technology do they need to master before on-boarding, do they have to master Scala or simply use their Java skills? You will find answers to those questions, get a realistic perspective on the platform, and see code (because we are all a bit geeks, right?)
