Abstract: I will describe Sketch, a library and a distributed runtime for building interactive tools for exploring large datasets, distributed across multiple machines. We have built several sophisticated applications using this framework; I will describe a billion-row spreadsheet, and briefly present a distributed-systems performance analyzer. Sketch applications allow interactive and responsive exploration of complex distributed datasets, scaling effectively to take advantage of large computational resources.
