Spark is one of the most in-demand Big Data processing frameworks right now.

This course will take you through the core concepts of PySpark. We will work to enable you to do most of the things you’d do in SQL or Python Pandas library, that is:

  • Getting hold of data

  • Handling missing data and cleaning data up

  • Aggregating your data

  • Filtering it

  • Pivoting it

  • And Writing it back

All of these things will enable you to leverage Spark on large datasets and start getting value from your data.

Let’s get started.

Who this course is for:

  • People wanting to leverage their big data with Spark

Hey guys! I am a data engineer by trade and specialize in Python, SQL, Spark, Hive, MongoDB and more. I've come on Udemy to try and make simple, short crash courses into these technologies as I personally find the longer courses too drawn out & I often lose interest. The idea is to keep it short and sharp!
