About the Discussion

Linus Thorvalds started the revolution decades ago by working with many colleagues to create Linux, the open-source operating system. Then, back in 1995, the Apache Web Server came onto the scene, revolutionizing web development. Just over 10 years ago, open-source tackled Big Data with Hadoop. But what’s happening now? LinkedIn rolled out Kafka, and of course Databricks continues to focus on Spark. How can your business benefit? Check out this episode of DM Radio to find out! Host Eric Kavanagh will interview several open-source experts.
