Last week Toronto enjoyed its first RethinkDB meetup. Chris Cates organized the meetup with the sponsorship of Pilot and RethinkDB. Pizza, salad, soft drinks, and swag. It was good! Technically I am a co-organizer of the event, but honestly, I did not contribute much to the meetup besides getting the word out.
There was also a Apache Spark meetup this week. Sponsored by Shopify. It was business as usual, but it was very interesting to hear how Hadoop, Hive, and Python are already being replaced by Spark and Scala – in production!
