Overview

HPCC Systems is a distributed big data technology used by LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group.  It was, in fact, created by LNRS long before Hadoop came along and it still serves as the core technology behind a $3B/year business.

In this workshop you will be introduced to the HPCC Systems technology and to the data flow language used to program on it, ECL.  The data you will be examining is a detailed global schedule of airline flights.  Each record contains not only takeoff/landing places and times, but details regarding the plane, meals, and crew are included as well.
