Event description


Apache Spark Bootcamp

This three-day course is for data engineers, analysts, architects; software engineers; IT operations; and technical managers interested in a thorough, hands-on overview of the Apache Spark™ platform.

The course covers the core APIs for using Spark, fundamental mechanisms and basic internals of the platform, SQL and other high-level data access tools, as well as Spark's streaming capabilities and machine learning APIs.

Each topic includes slide and lecture content along with hands-on use of Spark through the elegant Databricks web-based notebook environment. Inspired by tools like IPython/Jupyter and Matlab, Databricks notebooks allow attendees to code jobs, data analysis queries, and generate visualizations using their own Spark cluster, accessed through a web browser.
