For those of you that are interested in Big Data, you may be interested in knowing that I've just release the first version or a working docker image that simplifies *a lot* the usage of Apache Zeppelin in a Windows environment.
As you may know I'm working on a SQL Server / SQL Azure interpreter for Apache Zeppelin in order to have a good mainstream tool for interactive data exploration and visualization also on the SQL Server platform
I've just finished a new version of the SQL Server interpreter, rebuilt from scratch, now much cleaner then the first alpha version I release moths ago, and I also decided to use docker to avoid the "linux-pains" :) to everyone who just what to use Zeppelin and are not interested in *building* it.
Here's a screenshot of the working container:
If you want try it (and/or help with development, documentation, and so on) you can use the docker image here:
Supporting docker is especially important since it make *really really* easy to deploy to container to Azure and connect it to SQL Azure/ Azure DW or SQL Server in a AzureVM. No manual build needed anymore.
