Northeast Scala Symposium 2012

Apache Hadoop is the current darling of the "Big Data" world. Most Hadoop Applications are written in the low-level Java API or high-level languages like Hive (a SQL dialect).

Using Scala examples from tools like Scrunch, Spark, and others, I demonstrate why functional programming is the way to improve internal efficiency and developer productivity. Finally, I look at the potential future role for Scala in Big Data
