For Data Scientists interested in interactive analytics using Apache Flink, Apache Zeppelin is a great starting point. Interactive workspaces for the exploration and visualization of Big Data are fast becoming a must-have tool for Data Scientists. In particular, web-based Notebooks such as Zeppelin, an Apache Incubator project, are growing in popularity due to their support for collaborative development.
In this talk, we will walk you through how to use Flink and Zeppelin on the Hopsworks platform. Hopsworks is an intuitive project-based front-end for Hadoop that also supports project-based multi-tenancy (think GitHub), DataSet sharing (think Dropbox), free-text search using ElasticSearch and one-click installation.
