Look inside

Spark in Action teaches you the theory and skills you need to effectively handle batch and streaming data using Spark. Fully updated for Spark 2.0.

about the technology

Big data systems distribute datasets across clusters of machines, making it a challenge to efficiently query, stream, and interpret them. Spark can help. It is a processing system designed specifically for distributed data. It provides easy-to-use interfaces, along with the performance you need for production-quality analytics and machine learning. Spark 2 also adds improved programming APIs, better performance, and countless other upgrades.
