  • @iPr0gram Our suggestion for an advanced programming lecture at Imperial: big data programming -- @ApacheSpark and/or @ApacheFlink

    By LSDSImperial, 10 months 3 days ago

The goal of the LSDS group is to support the design and implementation of tomorrow's large-scale distributed systems. We investigate new abstractions and infrastructures for building scalable, robust and secure data-intensive applications.
