AMP Camp 5 was a huge success! Over 200 people participated in this sold-out event, we had over 1800 views of our live stream from over 40 countries, and we received overwhelmingly positive feedback. In addition to learning about the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS), participants were particularly interested in interacting with many of the lead developers of the BDAS software projects, who gave talks about their work and also served as teaching assistants during the hands-on exercises.
This 2-day event provided participants with hands-on experience using BDAS, the set of open-source projects including Spark, SparkSQL, Gra
phX, and MLlib/MLbase. For the fifth installment of AMP Camp, we expanded the curriculum to include the newest open-source BDAS projects including Tachyon, SparkR, ML Pipelines and ADAM, as well as a variety of research and use-case talks.
Details about AMP Camp 5, including slides and videos from the talks as well as all of the training material for the hands-on exercises, are available on the AMP Camp website.
