An introduction to using Spark and integrating Spark with Cassandra to perform analytics and data processing. If you are using Cassandra, then you almost certainly have a large amount of data which you want upon which some form of processing needs to be done. Spark is a new distributed computing platform which makes writing big data analytics incredibly easy and it integrates with Cassandra with minimal effort.

In this presentation, I will show how to get Spark setup with Cassandra and how to interact with Cassandra through Spark. Also covered will be architectural details of Spark such as how it handles failure recovery along with the main programming concepts needed to implement simple through complex processes on Spark. Then I will walk through a demonstration of using Spark to perform ETL on a dataset and save the data into Cassandra and then use Spark to do analytics on the data in Cassandra.

Time permitting I will explain some things we are using Spark for at SimpleRelevance and cover Spark Streaming.
