A nice demo of the recently announced MapReduce engine written on Python r3 library1 against commit histories from GitHub:
It is pretty simple to get r3 to do some cool calculations for us. I got the whole sample in a very short amount of time. It took me more time to write this post than to make r3 calculate the commiter percentages.
r3 is a Python-based map-reduce engine using Redis as a backend ↩
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
