Cloudera Data Science Workbench Training prepares learners to complete data science and machine learning projects using Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW).

Through narrated demonstrations and hands-on exercises, learners achieve proficiency in CDSW and develop the skills required to:

  • Navigate CDSW’s options and interfaces with confidence
  • Create projects in CDSW and collaborate securely with other users and teams
  • Develop and run reproducible Python and R code
  • Customize projects by installing packages and setting environment variables
  • Connect to a secure (Kerberized) Cloudera or Hortonworks cluster
  • Work with large-scale data using Apache Spark 2 with PySpark and sparklyr
  • Perform end-to-end machine learning workflows in CDSW using Python or R (read, inspect, transform, visualize, and model data)
  • Measure, track, and compare machine learning models using CDSW’s Experiments capability
  • Deploy models as REST API endpoints serving predictions using CDSW’s Models capability
  • Work collaboratively using CDSW together with Git

Who Can Benefit

  • This course is designed for learners at organizations using CDSW under an enterprise license or a trial license. The learner must have access to a CDSW environment on a Cloudera or Hortonworks cluster running Apache Spark 2. Some experience with data science using Python or R is helpful but not required. No prior knowledge of Spark or other Hadoop ecosystem tools is required.
