I’ll have to be honest on this one—I don’t do anything with Spark, so I can’t offer much in this category. What I can do is help connect you with others who have a bit more to say on the matter. This episode is an example. As we stretch the technology stack in this episode, I rely on my trusty co-hosts to get us through. Kevin and Jean-Georges Perrin do a great job giving us their thoughts on Spark. I hope you will enjoy the episode and that Jean-Georges’s book offers you some insights.

“The idea is as you process more and more data, and most of IT is about processing data at some point, a lot of those applications you’re building, especially with Spark, is really about analytics.”
