The State of Distributed Computing
There is an explosion of interest in distributed computing, fueled by exponential growth in data volumes, and promising new computational algorithms that routinely require thousands of cores. For many years now, Dask has been quietly transforming how the Python open-source ecosystem approaches distributed computing, and its adoption is entering a phase of rapid growth.

Join Anaconda Co-Founder and CEO, Peter Wang, and Coiled CEO and Dask Initial Author, Matthew Rocklin, on Tuesday, September 28, for a lively discussion about the state of distributed computing, including trends, pain points, and what's next on the horizon!

Sep 28, 2021 06:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
