This course uses a case study driven approach to explore the fundamentals of Spark Programming with Databricks, including Spark architecture, the DataFrame API, Structured Streaming, and query optimization. You will start by visualizing and applying Spark architecture concepts in example scenarios. Then, you will explore and preprocess datasets by applying a variety of DataFrame transformations and actions. After ingesting data from various file formats, you will apply these preprocessing steps and write them to Delta tables. The case study then expands to stream from Delta in an analytics use case that demonstrates core Structured Streaming concepts. Lastly, you will explore the Spark UI and how query optimization, partitioning, and caching affect performance.

Skills Gained

  • Define the major components of Spark architecture and execution hierarchy
  • Describe how DataFrames are built, transformed, and evaluated in Spark
  • Apply the DataFrame API to explore, preprocess, join, and ingest data in Spark
  • Apply the Structured Streaming API to perform analytics on streaming data
  • Navigate the Spark UI and describe how the catalyst optimizer, partitioning, and caching affect Spark's execution performance

The course on Redshift was excellent! As a DBA/DA I found there is a quite a bit of learning for Oracle professionals to move into AWS.

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

Everything is really good, but it would be nice if all of the resources were on one website or at least shared a login. I don't like that I had to create three new accounts to manage the course resources.

The class was fun. It covered a lot of material. Im glad the instructor insisted on our webcams being on. In addition, you could have more pop quizzes so that the audience is attentive.

Very good course materials. Maybe could have included a bit more on something like FPO but otherwise very good. Very good instructor and environment.
