An Overview of Scalding

An intro to Scalding1, Twitter’s Scala API for Cascading, by Dean Wampler2:

“There’s not better way to write general-purpose Hadoop MapReduce programs when specialized tools like Hive and Pig aren’t quite what you need.”

Watch the video and slides after below.

✚ At Twitter, the creators of Scalding, different teams use different libraries for dealing with different scenarios.

✚ Dean Wampler is the co-author of the Programming Scala book so his preference for Scala is understandable.

✚ Do you know any other teams or companies using Scalding instead of Cascading or Cascalog?
