Usage of 3rd party open source tools on top of spark for app building

Are we allowed to use third party tools such as sparkling water (0xdata) built over spark to build the apps for this hackathon?

    Please could someone answer this question. This will help us understand if third party tools can be used at all for this competition. Thanks!

    Hello!

    Per the rules, participants must "Identify a business need that could be informed by data analysis and find data (publicly available data or data from your own business) to analyze using Apache Spark to inform that business need. Analyze the data using Apache Spark and share your analysis code for judging (via Github or privately shared file)."

    As long as you've met these requirements you are welcome to use additional third party tools in your submission. "SDKs, APIs, & Data: Submissions may, but are not require to, integrate other APIs, SDKs, datasets, and custom code as long as the developer is authorized to use them."

    I hope this helps!

    Best,
    Serena
