Data Analysis with Spark
Limited Capacity seats available

Spark is a programming model for doing large-scale data analysis in parallel, without focusing on the details of distributed computing; The same program you write for one computer will also work across many computers.   Spark builds on the MapReduce framework by providing an interactive environment that has a more general set of functions for manipulating data efficiently in-memory.  The result is a highly scalable way of quickly exploring large data sets interactively. 

We will be facilitating live data analysis on the Janus supercomputer for this tutorial.  If you wish to participate, please bring a laptop with a configured ssh client.

Introduction to Hadoop and HDFS
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will give an overview about Hadoop, an open source software framework for large scale data processing and the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).  Pig, a high-level data processing language will be used to perform data analysis exercises. Please bring your own laptop; a virtual machine with a single-node Hadoop installation will be provided. You can download an image of the virtual machine at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B156vzUuXrDEeUViV1lQSjNsNVk/view?usp=sharing
