Apache Spark – Crash course
The course is dedicated to people who have no previous Spark experience. The ultimate goal is to provide an overview of the most important Spark features so attendees get enough knowledge to start building their first Spark applications.
Marcin is a data developer and architect with experience in data infrastructure administration. His main strength is that his knowledge is proven on real-life big data related problems that he solves on a daily basis. The course emphasizes practical aspects of Spark and common problems and misconceptions that he encounters when helping clients. The course is an introduction to Spark led by a “hands-on” practitioner who gained his experience solving real life problems for many of his clients.
The training is designed for developers who want to start their adventure with Spark. No prior experience in Spark is required. All the hands-on exercises will be in Scala but they will be simple enough for anybody with good knowledge of any modern programming language. Every trainee should have VirtualBox installed on their laptop so they can do hands on exercises and fully benefit from the workshop.
