Online Training Learning Path: Data Science With Apache Spark 2
The real power and value proposition of Apache Spark is its speed and platform to execute data processing and data science tasks. Sounds interesting? Lets see how easy it is! Packts Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. Spark is one of the most widely-used large-scale data processing engines and runs extremely fast. It is a framework that has tools that are equally useful for application developers as well as data scientists. Spark’s unique use case is that it combines ETL, batch analytics, real-time stream analysis, machine learning, graph processing, and visualizations to allow data scientists to tackle the complexities that come with raw unstructured datasets. This Learning Path starts with an introduction tour of Apache Spark 2. We will look at the basics of Spark, introduce SparkR, then look at the charting and plotting features of Python in conjunction with Spark data processing, and finally take a thorough look at Spark’s data processing libraries. We then develop a real-world Spark application. Next, we will help you become comfortable and confident working with Spark for data science by exploring Sparks data science libraries on a dataset of tweets. The goal of this course to introduce you to Apache Spark 2 and teach you its data processing and data science libraries so that you are equipped with the skills required from modern data scientists. This Learning Path is authored by some of the best in their fields.Rajanarayanan Thottuvaikkatumana Rajanarayanan Thottuvaikkatumana, or Raj, is a seasoned technologist with more than 23 years of software development experience at various multinational companies.

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.
