Hey Orchest Community! I am Minura, a Data Engineer from Sri Lanka. I cam across Orchest recently and thought it was really cool. I just had to be a part of it. Happy to be here!

So tell us Minura, what's a tool (language, tool, framework) you can't live without?

Haha would be pretty lost without Spark. Big fan of running it on Databricks! Hopefully, in time I can add Orchest to the list!

Nice! Spark can be so wonderfully expressive. We should build some examples of Spark Orchest pipelines. We've had some game companies in the past who used Orchest to run Spark through PySpark.

That's a great idea. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

I'll run an example by you on Monday! Would be great to get feedback from a Spark afficionado like yourself 🙂
