This session will outline the steps required to use Xtend as a standalone code generator. We will walk through these steps from beginning to end with only an EMF data structure as a starting point and a fully functional data logger in the end. Attendees should leave this talk with the knowledge required to create and debug a code generation project.
We will introduce a Big Data configuration that uses Avro & Parquet for data formats, Hadoop for storage, and Spark / Hive for running queries. All of these projects are from the Apache Software Foundation and are widely used in the Data Science field. We will show how Eclipse provides an excellent foundation for IDE support and tooling to make it easier to develop solutions based on this technology stack.
