Spark Summit West 2015 will be held June 15-17 in San Francisco and we're excited to be a sponsor. On Tuesday, Alteryx President and COO George Mathew will be onstage with Databricks' Arsalan Tavakoli, discussing our commitment to Spark and our collaboration with Databricks on SparkR.


Empowering data analysts with Spark enabled advanced predictive analytics through familiar drag and drop R macros has always been a priority, and we've been busy as one of the primary contributors to SparkR, creating a R API that's a first class citizen of the Spark platform. Recently, Ion Stoica, CEO of Databricks took to our stage at Inspire 15 to discuss how SparkR gives R users seamless access to the powerful functionality provided by the Spark platform.


Besides George's talk and our booth (Booth K5) on the expo floor, Chris Freeman, one of the Alteryx primary SparkR contributors, will be speaking in "A Data Frame Abstraction Layer for SparkR" and Dr. Dan Putler, Alteryx Chief Scientist, will be holding a Q&A session in our booth.
