This course will teach you how to use Apache Spark to analyse large amounts of data at breakneck speed, leaving Hadoop in the dust! Handling Fast Data with Apache Spark SQL and Streaming is the sequel that delves deeper into SQL and Streaming.
In this course, you'll learn :
- Spark from the ground up, starting with its history before creating a Wikipedia analysis application as one of the means for learning a wide scope of its core API. That core knowledge will make it easier to look into Spark's other libraries, such as the streaming and SQL APIs.
- Finally, you'll learn how to avoid a few commonly encountered rough edges of Spark. You will leave this course with a tool belt capable of creating your own performance-maximized Spark application.
