    Apache Spark is a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing.

    100 times faster than Hadoop.

    Everyone knows SQL. But traditional databases are not good in hadling big amount of data. Nevertheless, SQL is a good DSL for data processing and it is much easier to understand Spark if you have similar query implemented in SQL.

    This article shows how common SQL queries implemented in Spark.

  • Clojure Euler: Problem 024

    A permutation is an ordered arrangement of objects. For example, 3124 is one possible permutation of the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4. If all of the permutations are listed numerically or alphabetically, we call it lexicographic order. The lexicographic permutations of 0, 1 and 2 are:

    012 021 102 120 201 210

    What is the millionth lexicographic permutation of the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9?
