Taming Big Data with Apache Spark and Python.
Apache Spark has emerged as the next big thing in the Big Data domain – quickly rising from an ascending technology to an established superstar in just a matter of years. Spark allows you to quickly extract actionable insights from large amounts of data, on a real-time basis. This book is your companion to learn Apache Spark in a hands-on manner. Start with understanding how to set up Spark on a single system or on a cluster. From analyzing large data sets using Spark RDD to developing and running effective Spark jobs quickly using Python, this course will teach you everything. Packed with over 15 interactive, fun-filled examples relevant to the real-world, the course will empower you to understand the Spark ecosystem and implement production-grade real-time Spark projects with ease.
