Subject Scala vs Python performance differences
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2014 00:48:55 GMT
Hi Spark users,

I've always done all my Spark work in Scala, but occasionally people ask
about Python and its performance impact vs the same algorithm
implementation in Scala.

Has anyone done tests to measure the difference?

Anecdotally I've heard Python is a 40% slowdown but that's entirely hearsay.
