Manipulating big data distributed over a cluster using functional concepts is rampant in industry, and is arguably one of the first widespread industrial uses of functional ideas. This is evidenced by the popularity of MapReduce and Hadoop, and most recently Apache Spark, a fast, in-memory distributed collections framework written in Scala. In this course, we'll see how the data parallel paradigm can be extended to the distributed case, using Spark throughout. We'll cover Spark's programming model in detail, being careful to understand how and when it differs from familiar programming models, like shared-memory parallel collections or sequential Scala collections. Through hands-on examples in Spark and Scala, we'll learn when important issues related to distribution like latency and network communication should be considered and how they can be addressed effectively for improved performance. Learning Outcomes. By the end of this course you will be able to: - read data from persistent storage and load it into Apache Spark, - manipulate data with Spark and Scala, - express algorithms for data analysis in a functional style, - recognize how to avoid shuffles and recomputation in Spark, Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some familiarity using the command line. This course is intended to be taken after Parallel Programming:




The sessions where clearly explained and focused. Some of the exercises contained slightly confusing hints and information, but I'm sure those mistakes will be ironed out in future iterations. Thanks!



Excellent overview of Spark, including exercises that solidify what you learn during the lectures. The development environment setup tutorials were also very helpful, as I had not yet worked with sbt.

I love the indepth aproach at the RDDs. I'd say DataFrames and DataSets required a bit more examples and testing material though.

創建者 Björn W


Quizzes in the lecture videos would be nice. Also more, but shorter videos would be enjoyable. Programming assignments very nice!

創建者 Evgheni E


The video speed is way to fast, this woman is speaking really fast, first as i slowed the video down at 75% was its ok.

創建者 Rudolf Z


Good course. Lectures intoduce main concepts of spark very well. Also good explained how spark works under the hood.

創建者 Jose R


Creo que es un curso muy educativo y muy práctico con retos que permiten conocer las herramientas en profundidad

創建者 Andrejs A


Specially the last lectures where useful. but there is quite some gap between the lectures and practical task.

創建者 Léo Z


Good course. Could be more comprehensive about analysis. Content is all video and Lecture notes would be nice.



Very good and knowledgeable course. It basically explains about spark core, dataframe, dataset and spark sql.

創建者 Łukasz G


Good introduction to Spark. One thing that I didn't like was use of simple Ints and Strings instead of types.

創建者 CarloNicolini


Learned a lot of new things, but I would have focused on more but shorter and more variegate assignments.

創建者 Ting T W


Nice course, get a fundamental knowledge of spark, scala. Homework is good with a decent level.

創建者 Patrik I


The videos had focus issues every now and again. It was still possible to see everything shown

創建者 Jose P A A


Good stuff, well presented, but the instructor takes no risks to explain more complex details.

創建者 aknin k


Bien mais j'aurais aimé avoir plus d'exercices pour s'entrainer sur les dataframes / datasets

創建者 Chuishi


Very good course! Contents are very useful. The lectures are intuitive, thorough and clear.

創建者 Sjoerd T


Took a bit long before the course actually started, but when it did, it was a great course!

創建者 Sridhar K


Really i get a wonderful experience and it gives the platform to increase my knowledge.

創建者 Federico A G C


The instructor is great as well as the material. The exercises are a little off topic

創建者 Khalid S


The course didn't flow as smoothly as I would have liked but I still recommend it.

創建者 Piotr G


Great content, however some materials are not clear and videos had a few problems.

創建者 Aaron


A good course to know about how spark works but not how to use it, I like this!

創建者 Иван М


Nice course, could use little fixes. Sometimes practice goes ahead of theory

創建者 Kristoffer V


Sometimes the labs included techniques not fully covered by the lectures.

創建者 Faisal A


Assignments could be made a little better. The lecture content is great.

創建者 Anuj M


Great course, trainer is simply amazing with the delivery and teachings
