just to clarify...the talk about caching (around 30 mins) is talking about techniques for caching data prior to processing as opposed to RDD caching (aka .persist() ), correct?
the reason for asking is that I've directed some of my colleagues here and I don't want there to be any confusion such as "errr...I thought Spark had an inbuilt caching feature, why is Maxim telling me not to use it?" I think it's important to clarify that you're taking about a different kind of caching here.
We're progressively rolling out the feature right now. It should be available to all of our users within the next 24 hours.
SkyDrive supports editing .sql files in the browser, but we don't yet have syntax highlighting or completion suggestions for SQL.
That's disappointing but I'm encouraged by your use of "not yet". I'll hope this comes soon.
Incidentally, Windows Azure allows publishing of websites from Dropbox. Given that SkyDrive now has an online code editor it would be nice if Windows Azure could publish from SkyDrive too. Maybe wander down the corridor to have a word with those folks and see what they can do!
I heard you mention ruby, php, csharp etc.. etc.... but I didn't hear SQL. Will the text editor support editing of my .sql files (feature hasn't rolled out to my skydrive yet otherwise I'd check for myself)? Would be great if it did because I store all my useful SQL Server scripts up on SkyDrive.
isn't the shared stuff too simple in nature? It is a a glorified copy and paste.
And you don't think that's a good thing? Copy-and-paste is a fundamental tenet of an O/S and I'm excited about anything that takes that paradigm and extends it (you might call it glorifying) - which is what contracts do.
Can't believe you guys are talking about a Sync API for syncing app settings and claiming it as your own. That was supposed to be the whole premise of Mesh when it first appeared. Go and find Charles' C9 interview with Ori Amigaif you don't believe me
Please slap Angus Logan around a bit until he promises to release a Sync API for us
