Taming Big Data with Spark Streaming and Scala - Hands On!

Dive right in with 20+ hands-on examples of analyzing large data sets with Apache Spark, on your desktop or on Hadoop!



About Course


“Big data" analysis is a hot and highly valuable skill – and this course will teach you the hottest technology in big data: Apache Spark. Employers including AmazonEBayNASA JPL, and Yahoo all use Spark to quickly extract meaning from massive data sets across a fault-tolerant Hadoop cluster. You'll learn those same techniques, using your own Windows system right at home. It's easier than you might think, and you'll be learning from an ex-engineer and senior manager from Amazon and IMDb.

Spark works best when using the Scala programming language, and this course includes a crash-course in Scala to get you up to speed quickly. For those more familiar with Python however, a Python version of this class is also available: "Taming Big Data with Apache Spark and Python - Hands On".

Who this course is for:
  • Software engineers who want to expand their skills into the world of big data processing on a cluster
  • If you have no previous programming or scripting experience, you'll want to take an introductory programming course first.
