This four-day workshop covers data science and machine learning workflows at scale using Apache Spark 2 and other key components of the Hadoop ecosystem. The workshop emphasizes the use of data science and machine learning methods to address real-world business challenges. Using scenarios and datasets from a fictional technology company, students discover insights to support critical business decisions and develop data products to transform the business. The material is presented through a sequence of brief lectures, interactive demonstrations, extensive hands-on exercises, and discussions. The Apache Spark demonstrations and exercises are conducted in Python (with PySpark) and R (with sparklyr) using the Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) environment. The workshop is designed for data scientists who currently use Python or R to work with smaller datasets on a single machine and who need to scale up their analyses and machine learning models to large datasets on distributed clusters. Data engineers and developers with some knowledge of data science and machine learning may also find this workshop useful.

Prerequisites

Workshop participants should have a basic understanding of Python or R and some experience exploring and analyzing data and developing statistical or machine learning models. Knowledge of Hadoop or Spark is not required.

When does class start/end?

Classes begin promptly at 9:00 am, and typically end at 5:00 pm.

Does the course schedule include a Lunchbreak?

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning. There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

If someone should need to contact you while you are in class, please have them call the center telephone number and leave a message with the receptionist.

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

What does GTR stand for?

GTR stands for Guaranteed to Run; if you see a course with this status, it means this event is confirmed to run. View our GTR page to see our full list of Guaranteed to Run courses.

I was really happy with the overall experience of attending a remote course through ExitCeritfied.

Exactly what we needed for our organization, at the right time, at the right price. We'll be back!

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth
