Description

Advance Your Ecosystem Expertise

Apache Spark is the next-generation successor to MapReduce. Spark is a powerful, open-source processing engine for data in the Hadoop cluster, optimized for speed, ease of use, and advanced analytics. The Spark framework supports streaming data processing and complex, iterative algorithms, enabling applications to run up to 100x faster than traditional Hadoop MapReduce programs.


Hands-On Hadoop

Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will navigate the Hadoop ecosystem, learning topics such as:

  • Using the Spark shell for interactive data analysis
  • The features of Spark’s Resilient Distributed Datasets
  • How Spark runs on a cluster
  • Parallel programming with Spark
  • Writing Spark applications
  • Processing streaming data with Spark
