Some of the most interesting conversations happen after work over beers. I’ve started to invite some technical big data thought-leaders to have these conversations recorded and share them with you.

My first guest is Erich Nachbar, the former CTO of Quantifind, who stopped by with a “classic German summertime drink.” We talk about his background, his work at Quantifind, and he breaks down what Spark is and diagrams how it works, MapR, Amazon Ec2, Scala, IntelliJ, and more.

Let me know what you think in the comments. Next week I speak to Ted Dunning from MapR.

    I could tell you’re a gentleman because you opened the other guy’s beer first, although you almost had a beer fail there. Nice format, good guests, interesting topic, down to earth. Please keep it up.
