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.

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.

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.

Participants gain practical skills and hands-on experience with data science tools including:

  • Spark, Spark SQL, and Spark MLlib
  • PySpark and sparklyr
  • Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW)
  • Hue
