Event description

Description

Title: Getting Started with Apache Spark
Instructor: Jerome Nilmeier
Level of difficulty: Beginner

Abstract:

In this hands on session, we will introduce the fundamentals of Apache Spark, including parallelization paradigms, cluster configuration, and coding examples from all of the main libraries of Apache Spark (SparkSQL, MLlib, GraphX, Spark Streaming, and SparkR). We will present additional examples from some of IBM's open source projects that run on the Spark framework (SystemML and R4ML). Students will be able to run examples on their laptops with minimal configuration adjusted. A basic understanding of scala, python, R, and the Hadoop ecosystem will be assumed.
