Special Edition at Strata+Hadoop World 2016: What Apache Arrow is Bringing to the Big Data Game

By on April 5, 2016

We just wrapped up our special edition of Big Data & Brews at this year’s Strata+Hadoop World in San Jose. And, while the beer may have been lacking (it was a little too early in the morning), the conversation certainly was not. I had a chance to connect with Hadoop heavyweight, Ted Dunning (chief application architect at MapR) and Jacques Nadeau who is the co-founder and CTO of Dremio – a startup aimed at the development of Apache Arrow, which is heating up the conversation as of late.

Ted comments that we’re starting to see the fruition of technical people working together to make a broad consensus — with both the Kafka API and Arrow being prime examples. Tune in below to get their thoughts on how the community is coming together.

As a side note, it’s a small world. One of the other Dremio founders is none other than Tomer Shiran who has also been a guest on our show.

Episode 1: Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect, MapR
