Data Science and Beer: Kris Peeters

At the recent sold-out Spark & Machine Learning Meetup in Brussels, Kris Peeters of Data Minded delivered a lightning talk called Data Science and Beer.

As Kris explained, because of its general-purpose nature, Apache Spark™ is being used by a wide variety of data professionals, each with their own backgrounds.

In this lightning talk, Kris shared what each group can learn from each other, how they can collaborate, and which are the recipes for disaster.
