Are you looking to learn Apache Spark? If so, our new course Introduction to Apache Spark is the course for you! Apache Spark is a unified analytics engine for large-scale data processing and our course will teach you all you need to know to leverage it with your Big Data.
We’ll start off with going through the installation and configuration of Apache Spark, as well as IntelliJ IDEA. IntelliJ IDEA is a Java integrated development environment (IDE) that is specifically designed to maximize developer productivity. After IntelliJ IDEA has indexed your source code, it offers a super-fast and intelligent experience by giving relevant suggestions in every context: instant and clever code completion, on-the-fly code analysis, and reliable refactoring tools.
We will discuss performing different data operations using Scala, the built-in native programming language of Apache Spark. From these discussions, we’ll transition into talking about Spark SQL. Much of what we can do in Scala we can do in Spark SQL, so if you’re already familiar with SQL, this will make the transition into working with Apache Spark and doing a lot of those data operations much easier.
Then we’ll dig into how we can use IntelliJ IDEA to deploy, debug, automate and expand on existing projects that we’ve already developed.
So, if you’re looking to take a deep dive into Apache Spark and how to use it with Big Data, you’ll want to take this course! As with all our On-Demand Learning courses, our expert designed content and class labs will give you all you need to know to utilize the skills learned right away – all taken on your schedule and on any device.
