Christopher Bradford will be speaking at Spark Summit 2015 on Lessons Learned with Spark at the US Patent & Trademark Office. His talk concerns moving large amounts of patent data from Cassandra to Solr. How his team approached the problem, the introduction of Spark as a solution, and how to optimize the Spark process. Topics include:

  • Understanding the parts of a Spark Job. Which components run where and common issues.
  • Adding metrics to show where pain points are in the code.
  • Comparing various methods in the API to achieve more performant code.
  • How we saved time and made a repeatable process with Spark.
