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 sophisticated
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.
The 5 day Spark course is aimed at developers who are
encountering Spark for the first time and want to understand how
to build Big Data Products with Spark. The course would enable
participants to build complete, unified Big Data applications
combining batch, streaming, and interactive analytics on all their
Developers would be able to write sophisticated parallel
applications to execute faster decisions, better decisions, and
real-time actions, applied to a wide variety of use cases,
architectures, and industries.
The course has a practical focus, mixing presentation with
in-depth hands-on labs and exercises.
