What is Big Data? Some examples of companies using Big Data, like Spotify, Amazon, Google, and Tesla
This lectures gives an introduction to Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs). This abstraction allows you to do transformations and actions in Spark. I give an example using filter RDDs, and explain how shuffle RDDs impact disk and network IO
Kafka guarantees at-least-once message delivery, but can also be configured for at-most-once. Log Compaction is a technique that Kafka provides to have a full dataset maintained in the commit log. This lecture shows an example of a customer dataset fully kept in Kafka and explains Log Tail, Cleaner Point and Log Head and how it impacts consumers.
