Learn Spark, Spark RDD, Spark Streaming, Kafka, SparkR, SparkSQL, MLlib, and GraphX From Industry Experts
As humans, we are immersed in data in our every-day lives. As per IBM, the data doubles every two years on this planet. The value that data holds can only be understood when we can start to identify patterns and trends in the data. Normal computing principles do not work when data becomes huge.
There is massive growth in the big data space, and job opportunities are skyrocketing, making this the perfect time to launch your career in this space.
In this course, you will learn Spark to drive better business decisions and solve real-world problems.
