Subject PySpark: preference for Python 2.7 or Python 3.5?
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 02:56:58 GMT
I have the option of running PySpark with Python 2.7 or Python 3.5. I am 
fairly expert with Python and know the Python-side history of the 
differences.  All else being the same, I have a preference for Python 
3.5.  I'm using CDH 5.8 and I'm wondering if that biases whether I 
should proceed with PySpark on top of Python 2.7 or 3.5. Opinions?  Does 
Cloudera have an official (or unofficial) position on this?
