This PySpark course is created to help you master the skills required to become a successful Spark developer using Python.

Course Description

The course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to become a successful Big Data & Spark Developer. You will learn how Spark enables in-memory data processing and runs much faster than Hadoop MapReduce, RDDs, Spark SQL for structured processing, different APIs offered by Spark such as Spark Streaming Spark MLlib.

PySpark is the alliance of Apache Spark and Python. Apache Spark is a framework created around quickness, effortless use, and streaming analytics, whereas Python is a general-purpose programming language.

Developers and Architects BI /ETL/DW Professionals Senior IT Professionals Mainframe Professionals Freshers Big Data Architects, Engineers, and Developers Data Scientists and Analytics Professionals.

PySpark is an interface for Apache Spark in Python. It allows you to write Spark applications using Python APIs and delivers the PySpark shell for interactively examining data in a dispersed environment.

The prerequisite for this course is: knowledge of Python Programming and SQL

Apache Spark is an open-source, spread processing system utilized for big data workloads. It uses in-memory caching and optimized query execution for quick queries against data of any size.

Spark is used in the world's top organization, and it is considered the third generation of a big data world. So, the knowledge of Spark unlocks new career opportunities.

The PySpark framework processes enormous amounts of data much quicker than other established frameworks. Python is well-suited for dealing with RDDs as it is dynamically typed.

What you'll learn

  • In this course, you will learn: data processing Apache Kafka Apache Flume Spark MLlib DataFrames and Spark SQL, and more.


  • Basic knowledge about the programming language as well as the framework basics of Apache Spark as well as Python.
