Building on our previous tutorial introducing BDAS, the open-source Berkeley Data Analytics Stack, in this tutorial we will provide each audience member with a Spark/Shark cluster on EC2 and walk through hands-on coding examples. Lessons will cover the Spark and Shark command line interfaces, writing a standalone program, and data clustering using a distributed machine learning algorithm on Spark. Read more.
