Hi, ESIP members! As a follow-on to our 2 hour Apache Spark presentation 
in Denver this last April, IBM is pleased to offer an even deeper dive 
into Spark. 

Here is your opportunity to attend a no-cost, all day (8:30-4:30MT), 
lecture and hands-on workshop introduction to Apache Spark for data 
engineers, data scientists and application developers in Denver on 
Tuesday, September 20th, 2016. 

The workshop will be held at the IBM office in the Denver Tech Center, 
4700 South Syracuse, 5th Floor, Room 533.

You can find more information at 
(or see the attached brochure) and register at 

Space is limited, but if there is enough interest, we have reserved the 
room for a second session on September 21.

Hope to see you there to learn more about how Spark can help you solve 
your organization's analytics challenges.

This IBM-sponsored Proof of Technology workshop will give you a full day 
of education on Apache Spark including hands-on education. The PoT will 
have a detailed overview of Apache Spark Data Science including hands-on 
exercises. The Lab will be done within a data science notebook and include 
import of data and analysis. 

Anyone interested in learning more about Apache Spark. 

A working knowledge of coding (preferred Python and/or Scala), understand 
distributed computing, Spark and SQL. 

Expect to spend a full day of lecture and hands-on exercises attacking 
real-world data challenges using Apache Spark. In 8 hours, you will learn 
the basic essentials of Apache Spark and why it's important to your 
organization. This workshop will focus on data wrangling and data 
pipelines, using techniques such as natural language processing, machine 
learning, and streaming.
