About The Course
This combo course is specifically designed to provide hands on understanding on how to create Spark applications using Scala programming. The Apache Spark & Scala training course offers in-depth knowledge about what Spark is all about and how it is different from Hadoop. The students getting enrolled for this course can get knowledge of techniques for improving application performance and enabling high speed processing by making use of Spark RDDs along with understanding the customisation of Spark using Scala.

Audience & Pre-Requisites

  • The program is best suited for software engineers, ETL developers, data engineers, data scientists, analytics professionals and graduates looking to make a career in Big Data.
  • The pre-requisite comes in the form of basic knowledge of SQL, databases and any query language.


Why Take Apache Spark & Scala Training?

  • Apache Spark being an open source computing framework is incredibly faster than MapReduce and Mahout, making it among the topmost demanded technologies in organisations working in almost all domains.
  • This is a highly comprehensive course for understanding advanced implementation of Scala.
  • Apache Spark is an alternative way of data processing, which is unique in streaming and batch processing.
  • This training course prepares students for advanced level certification programs.
