Subject Re: how to introduce spark to your colleague if he has no background about *** spark related
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2016 06:40:47 GMT
My 2 cents. Concepts are always boring to the people with zero background.
Use examples to show how easy and powerful Spark is! Use cases are also
useful for them. Downloaded the slides in Spark summit. I believe you can
find a lot of interesting ideas!

Tomorrow, I am facing similar issues, but the audiences are three RDBMS
engine experts. I will go over the paper Spark SQL in Sigmod 2015 with them
and show them the source codes.

Good luck!
