The Spark Summit Europe call for presentations is open, submit your idea today.

Since our survey in 2015, Apache Spark has seen tremendous growth with 4 releases in a single year, each adding hundreds of improvements.

We are running a short survey to understand users’ needs and usage of Apache Spark. Recent examples of how community input helped influence Spark include:

  • APIs for data science including DataFrames, Datasets, Machine Learning Pipelines, and R support
  • Platform APIs
  • Project Tungsten and Performance Improvements
  • Spark Streaming and Structured Streaming

To understand your usage of Apache Spark and associated technologies, we have designed a short survey, in which all your responses will remain confidential and only the aggregate statistics will be shared.

At Databricks we value community feedback, and this survey will help us both to understand usage of Spark and to direct our future contributions to it. In appreciation, you will be entered to win one of THREE prizes once you complete the survey: $200 Visa card, iPad Mini, or Beats headphones.
