Learning Scala Macros. Learning to Learn Scala Macros are powerful, but very daunting.

Learning Scala Macros

I only had time to quickly poke at them in the past, and I always felt overwhelmed. I couldn’t figure out how to modify the existing examples to do what I wanted, even when I thought I wanted to implement something very basic. I finally had a chance to make some sense of them, so I’m sharing some tips I learned along the way. I had a specific goal in mind – I wanted my macro to supply definitions for abstract methods. My macro should generate the equivalent of The idea seemed pretty simple, but I knew there would be a lot to learn about macros before I could make it happen.

(This idea is related to another project of mine, Oleander, which will read data directly from ByteBuffers for a variety of reasons. WARNING This is not a tutorial. First Steps basic project setup simple macro defs a few basics on working with Abstract Syntax Trees (ASTs) Macros - Macro Paradise. Eugene Burmako I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.

Jorge Luis Borges, “Poem of the Gifts” GraphX - Spark 1.3.0 Documentation. GraphX is a new component in Spark for graphs and graph-parallel computation.

GraphX - Spark 1.3.0 Documentation

At a high level, GraphX extends the Spark RDD by introducing a new Graph abstraction: a directed multigraph with properties attached to each vertex and edge. To support graph computation, GraphX exposes a set of fundamental operators (e.g., subgraph, joinVertices, and aggregateMessages) as well as an optimized variant of the Pregel API. Apache Spark.

Graph Analytics With GraphX. In this chapter we use GraphX to analyze Wikipedia data and implement graph algorithms in Spark.

Graph Analytics With GraphX

The GraphX API is currently only available in Scala but we plan to provide Java and Python bindings in the future. 1. Background on Graph-Parallel Computation (Optional) If you want to get started coding right away, you can skip this part or come back later. From social networks to language modeling, the growing scale and importance of graph data has driven the development of numerous new graph-parallel systems (e.g., Giraph and GraphLab). The same restrictions that enable graph-parallel systems to achieve substantial performance gains also limit their ability to express many of the important stages in a typical graph-analytics pipeline.

These tasks typically require data-movement outside of the graph topology and are often more naturally expressed as operations on tables in more traditional data-parallel systems like Map-Reduce.
