This Apache Spark certification training will enable learners to understand how Spark executes in-memory data processing and runs much faster than Hadoop MapReduce. Learners will master Scala programming and will get trained on different APIs which Spark offers such as Spark Streaming, Spark SQLSpark RDD, Spark MLlib and Spark GraphX. This Edureka course is an integral part of Big Data developer's learning path.

After completing the Apache Spark training, you will be able to:

1) Understand Scala and its implementation

2) Master the concepts of Traits and OOPS in Scala programming

3) Install Spark and implement Spark operations on Spark Shell 

4) Understand the role of Spark RDD

5) Implement Spark applications on YARN (Hadoop) 

6) Learn Spark Streaming API 

7) Implement machine learning algorithms in Spark MLlib API 

8) Analyze Hive and Spark SQL architecture 

9) Understand Spark GraphX API and implement graph algorithms 

10) Implement Broadcast variable and Accumulators for performance tuning

11) Project

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.

The following Edureka blogs will help you understand the significance of Spark training:



Apache Spark is the new market buzz and having Big Data and Hadoop &  Apache Kafka skills is a highly preferred learning path after the Apache Spark & Scala training. Check out the upgraded Hadoop & Kafka Course details.

This course is a must for 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:

1. Big Data enthusiasts 

2. Software Architects, Engineers and Developers 

3. Data Scientists and Analytics professionals

A basic understanding of functional programming and object oriented programming will help. Knowledge of Scala will definitely be a plus, but is not mandatory.

The requirement for this course is a system with Intel i3 processor or above and minimum 4GB RAM.
For your practical work, we will help you set up a Virtual Machine on your system with IDE for Scala. This will be local access for you. The detailed step-wise installation guides are present in your LMS which will help you to install and set-up the environment for Spark and Scala. In case you come across any doubt, the 24*7 support team will promptly assist you.
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
Roaming Industry: Telecom 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.
