Workshop title: Dremio in Detail: A new open source approach to self-service BI and data science on data lakes and across disparate data sources Workshop description: Dremio is an open source project, based on Apache Arrow, that enables sub-second queries on terabytes of data in data lakes (S3, Azure Data Lake Store, Hadoop) and across disparate data sources including Elasticsearch, MongoDB and relational databases. Dremio empowers analysts and data scientists to be their own “data engineers”, and makes a company’s data engineers 10x more productive, freeing them from the never ending stream of data engineer support tickets. Dremio is downloaded by thousands of users every month. Student prerequisites: The students should have an understanding of SQL. A basic understanding of Python is beneficial but not required.
