About this event

David Stück, Staff Data Engineer at Evidation Health, will be hosting an interactive talk on analyzing data using PySpark. We’ll go through some basics of how Spark works and walk through an example data investigation using local PySpark.

Instructions on setting up a virtualenv with pyspark and Jupyter notebooks that we’ll go through during the talk are available at https://github.com/dstuck/pyspark-analytics-workshop. Participation is encouraged - bring your laptop and be ready to learn about the power of PySpark in big data analytics!

(make sure your laptop is fully charged as no outlets are available)

GDG New Orleans is a monthly meeting where developers can present on any topic related to technology and software development. Got a talk idea? Contact one of the organizers!
