Office Hour with Eric Sammer - Developing Data Applications

Eric Sammer (Cloudera)
Office Hour Table B

During this hour, I’ll answer questions about developing data-oriented applications on top of Hadoop and its ecosystem. Topics of specific interest are:

  • High level architecture and component suitability for specific use cases
  • Techniques and architectural designs for handling data at scale
  • APIs, libraries, and services that support the development of backend and frontend application development
  • Building data services that support other systems in the data center
