Course Overview

Spark is one of the most widely-used large-scale data processing engines and runs extremely fast. It is a framework that has tools that are equally useful for application developers as well as data scientists.

This Learning Path begins with an introduction to Apache Spark. We first cover the basics of Spark, introduce SparkR, then look at the charting and plotting features of Python in conjunction with Spark data processing, and finally Spark's data processing libraries. We then develop a real-world Spark application. Next, we enable you to become comfortable and confident working with Spark for data science by exploring Spark's data science libraries on a dataset of tweets.

Begin your journey into fast, large-scale, and distributed data processing using Spark with this Learning Path.

Basic knowledge:

  • Requires basic knowledge of either Python or R

Who should take this course

Application developers, data scientists, or big data architects interested in combining the data processing power of Apache Spark will find this course to be very useful. As implementations of Apache Spark will be shown with Scala and Python, some programming knowledge on these languages will be needed. This course is for anyone who wants to work with Spark on large and complex datasets. A basic knowledge about statistics and computational mathematics is expected.

With the help of real-world use cases on the main features of Spark, this course offers an easy introduction to the framework. This practical hands-on course covers the fundamentals of Spark needed to get to grips with data science through a single dataset. It expands on the next learning curve for those comfortable with Spark programming who are looking to apply Spark in the field of data science.
