Version 1.2

lecture: Apache Spark - Big Data made easy


Some people say that Apache Spark is the next big thing - but you better clue up yourself. After the talk you will know how Spark works and why Spark makes the life of a data scientist much easier.

Imagine you need to solve a problem, which would take days, weeks or even years to complete. Most of those problems can be worked on in parallel by cutting the huge task in to a lot of small tasks. Those can be executed in parallel and distributed across many computers to work on it.

With Apache Spark everyone has the power of writing programs, that can be efficiently distributed and parallelised. How this can be done with very limited effort is shown and explained in this talk. In addition you will learn a lot about the Spark architecture and how Spark helps you to solve your problems.
