No matter where you are in your coding journey this course will get you up and running with Apache Spark, from installation and configuration to power user with 5.5 hours of top quality video tutorials.
The first chapters are a step by step guide through the fundamentals of Spark programming, covering data frames, aggregations and data sets.
Next you'll dive into what you can do with all the data you collect using Spark, filter results with R and expose your data to Python for deeper processing and presentation using charts and graphs. After that, you go further into the capabilities of Spark's stream processing, machine learning, and graph processing libraries.
The last chapter combines all the skills you learned from the preceding chapters to develop a real-world Spark application.By the end of this video, you will be able to consolidate data processing, stream processing, machine learning, and graph processing into one unified and highly interoperable framework with a uniform API using Scala or Python.
