Apache Spark: A Hands-on Workshop
Apache Spark: A Hands-on Workshop


Apache Spark is a very popular Big Data platform. Spark’s popularity is due the fact that it is easier, more interactive and excels in in-memory computations (many times faster than MapReduce). Spark’s stream processing capability makes it a very good fit for processing ‘Connected Devices or Internet of Things (IoT)’ data.

This workshop will introduce Spark to students. We will go through the Spark concepts and learn how to use Spark. Students will learn by working on hands-on labs .
