The Apache Spark project was first open-sourced on 31 March 2010.
While much has been made of how quickly interest in Spark has grown, it’s worth pausing to remember that it’s been around for a whole five years. The project has had time to mature and expand into areas where there are the practical requirements (e.g. data frames, ML pipelines).
Looking forward to what the team comes up with in the next five years.
