Online Training Introduction to Apache Spark for Developers and Engineers
What is Apache Spark?Apache Spark is the next generation open source Big Data processing engine. Spark is designed to provide fast processing of large datasets and high performance for a wide range of applications. Spark enables in-memory cluster computing which greatly improves the speed of iterative algorithms and interactive data mining tasks. Course Outcomes’Introduction to Apache Spark’ includes illuminating video lectures, practical hands-on Scala and Spark exercises, a guide to local installation of Spark, and quizzes. In this course, we guide students through:An explanation of the Spark frameworkThe basics of programming in Scala, Spark’s native languageAn outline of how to work with Spark’s primary abstraction, resilient distributed datasets (RDDs).Upon completion of the course, students will be able to explain core concepts relating to Spark, understand the fundamentals of coding in Scala, and execute basic programming and data manipulation in Spark. This course will take approximately 8 hours to complete.

Investing in yourself through Learning
As a society, we spend hundreds of billions of dollars measuring the return on our financial assets. Yet, at the same time, we still haven’t found convincing ways of measuring the return on our investments in developing people.
And I get it: If my bank account pays me 1% a year, I can measure it to the penny. We’ve been collectively trained to expect neat and precise ROI calculations on everything, so when it’s applied to something as seemingly squishy as how effectively people are learning in the workplace, the natural inclination is to throw up our hands and say it can’t be done. But we need to figure this out. In a world where skills beat capital, the winners and losers of the next 30 years will be determined by their ability to attract and develop great talent.
Fortunately, corporate learning & development (L&D), like most business functions, is evolving quickly. We can embrace some level of ambiguity and have rigor when measuring the ROI of learning. It just might look a little different than an M.B.A. would expect to see in an Excel model.
