This five-day online course will be delivered from Monday, August 06, to Friday, August 10, 2018, from 9:00am to 1:00pm BST each day.

This ​course ​is ​designed ​for ​data ​engineers, ​analysts, ​architects; ​software ​engineers; ​IT ​operations; ​and ​technical ​managers ​interested ​in ​a ​thorough, ​hands-on ​overview ​of ​Apache ​Spark. ​ ​This ​course ​covers ​the ​same ​material ​as ​our ​three-day ​Apache ​Spark ​Programming ​course.

The ​course ​covers ​the ​core ​APIs ​for ​using ​Spark, ​fundamental ​mechanisms ​and ​basic ​internals ​of ​the ​framework, ​SQL ​and ​other ​high-level ​data ​access ​tools, ​as ​well ​as ​Spark’s ​streaming ​capabilities ​and ​machine ​learning ​APIs.

Each ​topic ​includes ​slide ​and ​lecture ​content ​along ​with ​hands-on ​use ​of ​Spark ​through ​an ​elegant ​web-based ​notebook ​environment. ​Inspired ​by ​tools ​like ​IPython/Jupyter, ​notebooks ​allow ​attendees ​to ​code ​jobs, ​data ​analysis ​queries, ​and ​visualizations ​using ​their ​own ​Spark ​cluster, ​accessed ​through ​a ​web ​browser. ​All ​class ​code ​is ​directly ​usable ​with ​pure ​open-source ​Spark ​or ​any ​commercial ​Spark ​distribution.


After ​taking ​this ​class ​you ​will ​be ​able ​to:

  • Describe ​Spark’s ​fundamental ​mechanics
  • Use ​the ​core ​Spark ​APIs ​to ​operate ​on ​data
  • Articulate ​and ​implement ​typical ​use ​cases ​for ​Spark
  • Build ​data ​pipelines ​with ​SparkSQL ​and ​DataFrames
  • Analyze ​Spark ​jobs ​using ​the ​UIs ​and ​logs
  • Create ​Streaming ​and ​Machine ​Learning ​jobs


  • Spark ​Overview
  • RDD ​Fundamentals
  • SparkSQL ​and ​DataFrames
  • Spark ​Job ​Execution
  • Cluster ​Architectures ​for ​Spark
  • Intro ​to ​Spark ​Streaming
  • Machine ​Learning ​Basics


​$2500 ​per ​person ​(except ​in ​the ​case ​of ​class ​cancellation, ​refunds ​will ​not ​be ​issued)


All ​participants ​will ​need ​a ​laptop ​with ​updated ​versions ​of ​Chrome ​or ​Firefox ​(Internet ​Explorer ​and ​Safari ​are ​not ​supported) ​and ​an ​internet ​connection ​which ​can ​support ​use ​of ​GoToTraining. ​ ​GoToTraining ​will ​be ​the ​platform ​on ​which ​the ​class ​will ​be ​delivered. ​More ​information ​can ​be ​found ​at: https://support.logmeininc.com/gotomeeting/get-ready. ​ ​Prior ​to ​class, ​each ​registrant ​will ​receive ​GoToTraining ​log-in ​instructions.

Before ​registering, ​please ​confirm ​your ​computer ​can ​run ​GoToTraining ​at: https://support.logmeininc.com/gotomeeting/get-ready
