Apache Livy and Demystifying Typeclasses - Meetup Torino - 06/06/2019

In this Meet up we will have two talks, the first is the new Apache Livy and the second will concern Demystifying Typeclasses.
Speech 1 - The new Apache Livy - Marco Gaido (Big Data Engineer @ Agile Lab)
Apache Livy will take a big step forward in the next release: the main changes are support for Spark 2.4 and a new JDBC interface. But why do we need a JDBC interface in Livy? Isn't Spark Thriftserver enough? In this speech we will answer these questions and immerse ourselves deeply in the way the new Thriftserver Livy was designed.
Speech 2 - Demystifying typeclasses - Andrea Fonti (Big Data Engineer @ Agile Lab)
In this talk we will discuss the concept of ad-hoc polymorphism and the "Type Class" pattern. We will start from a basic function able to sum two integers and construct an abstraction that will lead us to a polymorphic function able to aggregate an arbitrary number of values.
Join us!
