The Spark/Mesos Seattle Meetup group shared the latest presentation from their most recent meetup event in November. The topic of the event was "Unlocking your Hadoop data with Apache Spark and CDH5." The event's presentation can be found at the bottom of this page or here.
The goal of this group is to showcase real world implementations of working with Spark within the context of your Big Data Infrastructure. Session are demo heavy and slide light, focusing on getting your development environments up and running including getting up and running, configuration issues, SparkSQL vs. Hive, among other topics.
