From ACM Books: An Architecture for Fast and General Data Processing on Large Clusters, by Matei Zaharia. This book introduces a new architecture for cluster computing that handles data processing workloads at scale.
ACM's flagship monthly magazine is the premier chronicler of computing technologies, covering the most important discoveries, innovations, and research that both inspire and influence the field.
ACM’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent the major areas of the dynamic computing field and foster technical communities within their respective specialties across countries and continents.
A number of ACM communities have independently evolved their own “artifact” review processes and associated definitions of what it means to be reproducible. These communities have come together in this Task Force to collaborate on a common set of Best Practices which can be implemented in production infrastructure and reflected in publication.
Through these activities and feedback from the broader CS community, the ACM Digital Library will be ideally positioned to serve emerging requirements for sharing software, data and other artifacts, leading to increased scientific accountability and the adoption of improved experimental practices.
