Basic to intermediate level introduction to Apache Spark that provides the main skills required to use the technology
What is Apache Spark?
Apache Spark is the next generation open source Big Data processing engine. Spark is designed to provide fast processing of large datasets and high performance for a wide range of applications. Spark enables in-memory cluster computing which greatly improves the speed of iterative algorithms and interactive data mining tasks.
'Introduction to Apache Spark' includes illuminating video lectures, practical hands-on Scala and Spark exercises, a guide to local installation of Spark, and quizzes. In this course, we guide students through:
An explanation of the Spark framework
The basics of programming in Scala, Spark's native language
An outline of how to work with Spark's primary abstraction, resilient distributed datasets (RDDs).
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to explain core concepts relating to Spark, understand the fundamentals of coding in Scala, and execute basic programming and data manipulation in Spark. This course will take approximately 8 hours to complete.
Programming Languages recommended for this course:
Scala (course exercises are in Scala)
Data scientists and engineers
Individuals with a basic understanding of: Apache Hadoop, Big Data, programming languages (Scala, Java, or Python)
For students unfamiliar with Big Data and Hadoop, the course will provide a brief overview of each topic.
