Look inside

See it. Do it. Learn it! Spark in Motion teaches you to use Spark for big data analytics through high-quality video-based lessons and built-in exercises, so you can put what you learn into practice.

Spark in Motion teaches you how to use Spark for batch and streaming data analytics. In nearly 3 hours of hands-on video lessons, you'll get up and running with Spark, starting with the basic architecture of a Spark application. You'll explore data partitioning and accessing common application state, and then you'll deep-dive into using Spark SQL and dataframes for structured analytics. Finally, you'll use Spark Streaming to handle and process real-time data flowing into your application.

This video is one of two products included in the Getting Started with Spark bundle. Get the entire bundle for only $39.99.

Best course I have seen so far.

Peter J. Hampton, AI Researcher

Spark is a very valuable library, but it's very hard to use (the learning step is very steep). This video course makes the learning smoother, and takes the users to a place where they can experiment by themselves.
