As is their custom, Cloudera Engineering’s interns made innovation, especially for Apache Spark, the theme of the Summer season.
Cloudera has a long-time tradition of searching far and wide for the smartest summer engineering interns that it can find. Alumni of the program have become start-up co-founders, faculty at top-tier CS departments, employees at other prominent technology companies (including Google, Databricks, Uber, LinkedIn), as well as many current employees at Cloudera.

Data science is not a new discipline. However, with the growth of big data and adoption of big data technologies, the request for better quality data has grown exponentially. Today data science is applied to every facet of life—product validation through fault prediction,
Learn about the architecture of Ibis, the roadmaps for Ibis and Impala, and how to get started and contribute.
We created Ibis, a new Python data analysis framework now incubating in Cloudera Labs, with the goal of enabling data scientists and data engineers to be as productive working with big data as they are working with small and medium data today. In doing so, we will enable Python to become a true first-class language for Apache Hadoop,
This new Cloudera Labs project promises to deliver the great Python user experience and ecosystem at Hadoop scale.
Across the user community, you will find general agreement that the Apache Hadoop stack has progressed dramatically in just the past few years. For example, Search and Impala have moved Hadoop beyond batch processing, while developers are seeing significant productivity gains and additional use cases by transitioning from MapReduce to Apache Spark.
Thanks to such advances in the ecosystem,
This year will close out with new features for reliability, usability, and nested types, and in 2016, performance-related enhancements promise >20x gains.
It’s been roughly a year since we provided an update about the Impala roadmap. During that time, a number of milestones have been reached:
- Most Cloudera customers have deployed Impala to production across industries including financial services, retail, healthcare, gaming, government, advertising, and telecom.
