Learn how to use Scalding, a Scala library developed by Twitter, and conquer your Big Data problems. If you are a data scientist looking into better ways of conquering Hadoop, Scalding just may be the gateway to the powerful world of Scala. If you are a seasoned Scala developer, you will see how the functional paradigm and Scala collections extend to Big Data domain, dramatically reducing the size of Big Data programs. There will be no PowerPoint in this talk: we will do some real time drawings and will be running real code; we’ll put all of it into GitHub for everybody to enjoy.
