Bistro is a general purpose, light-weight data processing engine which changes the way data is being processed. It is going to be as simple as a spreadsheet and as powerful as SQL. At its core, it relies on a novel column-oriented data representation and processing engine which is unique in that its logic is described as a DAG of column operations as opposed to table operations in most other frameworks. Computations in Bistro are performed by evaluating columns which have custom definitions in terms of other columns.
