Ready to dip your toe into data science? Yes? But where and how do you start? Well we have an answer – Notebooks and PixieDust! PixieDust is a new open source library that helps data scientists and developers working in Jupyter Notebooks and Apache Spark be more efficient. PixieDust speeds data manipulation and display with features like auto-visualization of Spark DataFrames, real-time Spark Job progress monitoring directly from the Notebook, seamless integration to cloud services, and automated local install of Python and Scala kernels running with Spark. And if you prefer working with a Scala Notebook - no problem! PixieDust can also run on a Scala Kernel - imagine being able to visualize your favorite Python chart engines from a Scala Notebook!
