  • Who should go for this course
This course is a foundation to anyone who aspires to embark into the field of big data and keep abreast of the latest developments around fast and efficient processing of ever-growing data using Spark and related projects. The course is ideal for:

  • Big Data enthusiasts
  • Software architects, engineers and developers
  • Data Scientists and analytics professionals
  • What are the prerequisites for this course?
A basic understanding of functional programming and object oriented programming will help. Knowledge of Scala will definitely be a plus, but is not mandatory.
  • Project Work
Project #1:Design a system to replay the real time replay of transactions in HDFS using Spark.
Technologies Used: 

  1. Spark Streaming
  2. Kafka (for messaging)
  3. HDFS (for storage)
  4. Core Spark API (for aggregation)

Project #2: Drop-page of signal during Roaming
IndustryTelecom Industry
Problem Statement: You will be given a CDR (Call Details Record) file, you need to find out top 10 customers facing frequent call drops in Roaming. This is a very important report which telecom companies use to prevent customer churn out, by calling them back and at the same time contacting their roaming partners to improve the connectivity issues in specific areas.

  • Why learn Apache Spark?
In this era of ever growing data, the need for analyzing it for meaningful business insights is paramount. There are different big data processing alternatives like Hadoop, Spark, Storm and many more. Spark, however is unique in providing batch as well as streaming capabilities, thus making it a preferred choice for lightening fast big data analysis platforms.
