Ask not what you can do for real time data streams but what they can do for you. This talk will give an overview of Apache Spark and pyspark (Spark's Python API), with an emphasis on Spark's Streaming API. We'll be munging and visualizing Twitter data streams as a motivating example. Learn how your streaming data projects can benefit from bigger, better, faster data processing and analytics. Your life will be changed for the better - master streaming data, achieve world domination!
