Sponsored by:

Spark Camp, organized by the creators of the Apache Spark project at Databricks, will be a day-long hands-on introduction to the Spark platform, including Spark Core, Spark SQL, Spark Streaming, MLlib, GraphX, and more.

We will start with an overview of use cases and demonstrate writing simple Spark applications. We will cover each of the main components of the Spark stack via a series of technical talks targeted at developers who are new to Spark. Intermixed with the talks will be periods of hands-on lab work.

Everyone who participates will receive a free temporary account on Databricks Cloud, for limited free usage of Amazon AWS to run Spark clusters. We will use a cloud-based notebook for the exercises.

A tablet will not work. You will need to bring a laptop running Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. Internet Explorer is not supported.

I have a MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012), 4GB RAM, 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5.
Is it ok for the tutorial or should I use another one with better specs?

Thank You.
