3-Hours: Mesos is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation for distributed frameworks--much like Google's "Borg" for warehouse scale computing. We'll provide hands-on experience in how to build scalable, fault-tolerant data workflows atop Mesos. We'll use Chronos to orchestrate Hadoop jobs and other data prep, then use Marathon to launch a Rails + Redis app to serve results. Read more.
