How LinkedIn uses Scalding for Data Science
Data Science has a reputation for being complicated, but with the help of Scala, Scalding & Cascading, most patterns can be significantly simplified. This talk shows some common patterns within data science that can be redesigned & simplified, in many cases, to almost a single line!
Join, Vitaly Gordon, Senior Data Scientist at Linkedin, to learn more about how Vitaly and his team at Linkedin use the popular Scalding dynamic programming language on top of Cascading to answer a variety of data science questions.
This talk will be hosted at LinkedIn’s offices in Mountain View. Food and drink will be provided.
Note: This is an update to Vitaly’s talk in January at the Climate Corporation. Most of the concepts and discussions will be similar.
