Dask is a lightweight library for distributed computing in Python. David Dotson will be providing us with an overview of Dask. Dask is a highly flexible for analytics that enables data munging, exploration, visualization, and machine learning on larger-than-RAM datasets. The Dask API is modeled after well-known data structures in Python, such as Pandas DataFrames, NumPy arrays, and bags, making it very easy to work with. Dask supports the full benefits of out-of-core execution, distributed scheduling, and clustering all without the overhead of setting up and maintaining YARN or Spark, and can be installed easily using pip.
