Cascading is the most widely used and deployed Java-based application development framework for building Big Data applications on Apache Hadoop. This open source, enterprise development framework allows developers to leverage their existing skillsets such as Java, SQL, Scala and more, to create enterprise-grade applications on Apache Hadoop without having to think in MapReduce, or scripting query languages like Pig and Hive. In this session, Ryan will provide an introduction to Cascading and dive into using it to build applications.

The Hadoop ecosystem is an effective platform for conducting data-engineering tasks. However, mission-critical BI applications continue to run on traditional data warehouse platforms. In such enterprise use cases, Hadoop is emerging as a technology that augments existing platforms for processing these data-intensive tasks, requiring organizations to not only migrate workloads onto Hadoop for processing, but also extract data for reporting and analysis.

In this session, Supreet will demonstrate how to leverage SQL to improve utilization of Hadoop with existing data sources. Attendees will learn how to utilize Cascading and Cascading Lingual for Big Data application development, how to integrate Hadoop with an enterprise data warehouse through one SQL statement, and how to quickly integrate BI tools with Hadoop.

New computation fabrics with different interfaces and design patterns are continually being introduced into the market. As a result, if companies wish to leverage new innovations in Big Data platforms, they must constantly break and rebuild their operating models to keep up.

In this session, Supreet will discuss how organizations can future-proof Big Data investments against these emerging technologies with Cascading. Supreet will demonstrate how to build applications on emerging fabrics like Tez and Spark with existing skillsets, as well as give a tour of the Cascading community -- a robust ecosystem that extends the power of Cascading applications with various integrations, dynamic programming languages and data source connections.
