Working with the Type Safe Scalding API
Abstract: Scalding is a go-to choice for developing MapReduce jobs and the new(ish) Type Safe API promises to make jobs ever more safer, without adding any additional testing overhead (and, of course, you all test your jobs). In the process of rolling out the Type Safe API of Scalding at Criteo we encountered a number of pitfalls made more difficult to overcome by the lack of documentation and examples of the Type Safe API. During this talk we’ll present a down and dirty look at what it takes to get a team up, running and productive on this sometimes mysterious API.
