About this workshop

The advent of ubiquitous mobile devices and increasing number of users joining online everyday, the age of Big Data is upon us. While the term Big Data is widely used, there are lots of misconceptions about it.

Businesses today have a need to collect, store, analyze and visualize data in ways they haven't done so before. It's important to learn and stay relevant in this evolving stream of changes. We will begin with an introduction to the emerging challenges of Big Data, review concepts from distributed systems and discover how Spark as a framework meets these challenges. This tutorial is hands-on, pragmatic, and intended to give you working knowledge with common Spark workflows.

In this bootcamp, students will learn:

  • Intro to distributed systems
  • How to install and set up a Spark environment locally
  • Spark framework internals and Execution Context
  • Explore various APIs for large scale data parsing, transformation & analysis: RDD, DataFrame, SparkSQL
  • Functions, Transformations & Actions
  • Spark Deployment Modes

Takeaways

  • What Spark is and how it works
  • Process, transform and visualize data
  • Working knowledge of how to build Spark Applications
  • Practical case studies demonstrating most common features
  • Avoid common mistakes
