Spark is an up-and-coming distributed computing platform gaining a lot of momentum in the field of big data. From experimentation and discovering solutions within the Spark platform, Erich has gained insight into the various problems it can solve. It’s new, easy to use, and improves upon the old Hadoop computing platform. 

Erich will be taking workshop attendees outside of the expected use of Spark including ETL, data analysis, and event processing to reveal how to build a distributed ray tracer. Doing this will demonstrate the many complex problems that Spark can be used to solve beyond data processing and analysis.
