Apache Spark is one of the fastest and most efficient general engines for large-scale data processing. In this course, you will learn how to develop Spark applications for your Big Data using Python and a stable Hadoop distribution, Cloudera CDH.
At the core of working with large-scale datasets is a thorough knowledge of Big Data platforms like Apache Spark and Hadoop. In this course, Developing Spark Applications with Python & Cloudera, you’ll learn how to process data at scales you previously thought were out of your reach. First, you’ll learn all the technical details of how Spark works. Next, you’ll explore the RDD API, the original core abstraction of Spark. Finally, you’ll discover how to become more proficient using Spark SQL and DataFrames. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of Apache Spark with Python and Cloudera that will help you as you move forward to develop large-scale data applications that enable you to work with Big Data in an efficient and performant way.
