Spark is one of the hottest Big Data technologies. The amount of data generated today by devices, applications and users is exploding. Therefore, there is a critical need for tools that can analyze large-scale data and unlock value from it. Spark is a powerful technology that meets that need. You can, for example, use Spark to perform low latency computations through the use of efficient caching and iterative algorithms; leverage the features of its shell for easy and interactive Data analysis; employ its fast batch processing and low latency features to process your real time data streams and so on.

Today’s most cutting-edge companies such as Apple, Netflix, Facebook, and Uber have deployed Spark at massive scale, processing petabytes of data to deliver innovations — from detecting fraudulent behavior to delivering personalized experiences in real-time — that are transforming every industry.

This course is suitable to professionals who are working or aim to work in analytics related roles in such departments as Data Science, Data Engineering, Applications Development, Customer Insight, Business Intelligence, IT, Finance, and so on.

Basic knowledge of SQL and some programming language is preferred yet not mandatory.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Manage the basic and intermediate features of the Scala language
• Use User Defined Functions (UDF) in Spark SQL
• Use SQL language for interrogating Spark DataFrames / Datasets
• Apply transformations to a data stream and persist the resulting data in various formats and storages
• Find relationships in a graph data model
• Walk-away with a fully configured VM containing a single Spark node and related storage (Hadoop/Hive) and a collection of tips/best practices.

•Interactive training classes in 2 days (daytime timetable) or 4 evenings (evening timetable)
•Hands-on practice after the classes with a work-based assignment in 14-21 days
•Access to support by our mentors during the course period
•Pairview Certification for achieving this competency

Learning Goal: You will learn the main features of the Scala programming language which is also the language with which Apache Spark has been written, starting from the basic up to the usage of powerful operators for managing collections of data.
• Why Scala for Spark
• Using a Scala IDE
• Collections in Scala-Array & ArrayBuffer
…and more.

Learning Goal: Get started with the computation framework which tremendously boosted Hadoop performances: from a single node installation and configuration up to the understanding of Spark internals, the Resilient Distributed Dataset (RDD) along with using a notebook for development
• Introduction to Spark and its ecosystem
• Spark 2 vs Spark 3
• Spark Modes
…and more.

Learning Goal: Learn the Apache Spark module for structured data processing: from managing the various ingestion data formats to apply a schema to the DataFrame/Dataset to run advanced SQL queries
• DataFrames and Datasets, StructType class
• Data Sources: Generic Load/Save, Parquet Files, JSON/Avro files, txt/csv/tab files, Hive Tables, JDBC to other databases
• Schema Inference
…and more.

Learning Goal: You will get a practical understanding of Spark Streaming, which enables scalable, high-throughput, fault-tolerant stream processing of live data streams
• Introduction to Spark Structured Streaming Programming Model
• Bounded vs Unbounded Streaming
• Creating streaming DataFrames and Datasets
…and more.

Learning Goal: You will get introduced to Spark’s API for graphs and graph-parallel. A graph database is a database designed to treat the relationships between data as equally important to the data itself. It is intended to hold data without constricting it to a pre-defined model.
• The Property graph: Vertex and Edge
• Graph Operators
…and more.
