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
The 2 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
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.
