ABOUT THE EVENT

It doesn't get any better than this: Research Scientist Chris Fregly will be kicking off our inaugural meeting with an interactive deep-dive presentation that you won't want to miss!

 

Chris is an Apache Spark Contributor, a Netflix Open Source Committer, founder of the wildly-popular Advanced Spark and TensorFlow Meetup in San Francisco, and author of the upcoming Advanced Spark book. He actively shares his knowledge at meetups and conferences throughout the world - in fact, he's also presenting at MLconf the following afternoon.

 

Bottom line: Chris knows Apache Spark.  We couldn't ask for a better speaker to kick off the Atlanta Apache Spark User Group's first meetup event!

Presentation details will be posted shortly - And yes, webcast details will be emailed to all registered attendees before the event.
