SCALE 14x is happy to welcome back the Apache Bigtop community. Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc...) developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects.
In this workshop attendees will learn about the Bigtop project, it's ecosystem and the roadmap for the project. They will receive an introduction to the concept of in-memory computing and learn about the Apache Ignite project. Attendees will also be given an overview of the Apache Spark project, a fast and general engine for big data processing. The workshop will conclude with sessions on how Apache Bigtop can be introduced into an existing infrastructure for those wishing to build their own stacks.
