A couple weeks ago we announced Spark Live, an eight-city road show brought to you by Databricks in collaboration with premier sponsor Intel, designed exclusively for data analytics practitioners, and decision makers who want to learn how to leverage the power of open source Apache Spark and Databricks to simplify data processing and make their transformative use cases a reality.

The first stop on our tour in search of Spark enthusiasts was Hanover, Maryland on May 9th. Needless to say, our inaugural event was a huge success! We exceeded seating capacity with the room packed to the back walls and standing room only.


Throughout the day we covered industry insights, discussions on how to deploy Spark for multiple use cases, live product demos, and a hands-on technical workshop of Spark in Databricks Community Edition.

Next stop: The City of Angels on May 24th!

Next week we will make our way down to sunny Southern California for another full day of exciting technical presentations and training. The day will feature a stellar lineup of presenters including:

  • Ali Ghodsi - CEO and Co-founder of Databricks
  • Ram Sriharsha - Product Manager at Databricks, and Spark Committer and PMC member
  • Richard Garris - Solutions Architect at Databricks and machine learning expert

We will also feature talks by our premier sponsor Intel, a leading contributor to the Apache Spark project, and local sponsor Redis Labs who will showcase their new Spark connector.
