The open source Trusted Analytics Platform accelerates the creation of cloud-native applications driven by big data analytics. Optimized for performance and security, TAP makes it easier for developers and data scientists to collaborate by providing a shared, flexible environment for advanced analytics in public and private clouds.

Chuck Freedman and Venkatesh Bharadwaj lead a hands-on workshop that offers an overview and demonstration of TAP. You’ll use elements of popular open source projects including Spark, Hadoop, Cloud Foundry and others to work with data and deploy a simple visualization application in the cloud.

This workshop is sponsored by Intel and TAP.
