Ibis: Productive Python Analytics at Scale

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While Python is a de-facto language for modern data engineering and data science, Python development has been confined to local data processing—thereby limiting its users to smaller data sets. Historically, to address bigger data workloads, Python developers have had to extract samples or aggregates, forcing compromises in data fidelity, adding ETL costs, and ultimately leading to a loss of productivity and addressable use cases.

Ibis, a new open source data analytics framework for Python developers, has the goal of enabling the Python data ecosystem (NumPy, pandas, etc.) to operate efficiently at Hadoop scale. To enable high performance Python at scale without the age-old JVM interoperability problems, we are exploiting unique synergies between Python and Impala, the leading open source MPP analytical query engine. In this talk, Ibis creator Wes McKinney, who was also the creator of pandas, will give an overview of Ibis and the upcoming project roadmap.
