Q. You’re speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest in March. Tell us a bit about your session.
My session is about Apache Zeppelin, an open-source web-based notebook for your Big Data (or Small Data) technologies.
In this talk, I will show all Zeppelin features, highlight its modular architecture and show you how to develop your own interpreter/plugin for your technology to work with Zeppelin, if it doesn’t already exist!
Q. Why is the subject matter important?
With the rise of Big Data, the need for a easy-to-use front-end is more and more a must-have. And Zeppelin is gaining momentum right now, being used a lot for live coding demo but also as a tool for Data Scientists working with Spark.
Q. Who should attend your session?
Anyone working in the Big Data space, developer or end-user (consumer) of Big Data projects
Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session?
a. Zeppelin offers a free front-end for your big data project
b. Zeppelin architecture is modular enough so that you can add your own interpreter/plugin
c. The community is growing and proposing an impressive list of plugins for all major Big Data technologies (Cassandra, ElasticSearch, Flink, …)
Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what else are you excited about for 2016?
I’m excited about new features to come in Apache Zeppelin that will make it the default choice front-end for many projects
