About the course

New! Updated for Spark 3.0.0!

"Big Data" analysis is a hot and highly valuable skill. Thing is, "big data" never stops flowing! Spark Streaming is a new and quickly developing technology for processing massive data sets as they are created - why wait for some nightly analysis to run when you can constantly update your analysis in real time, all the time? Whether it's clickstream data from a big website, sensor data from a massive "Internet of Things" deployment, financial data, or something else - Spark Streaming is a powerful technology for transforming and analyzing that data right when it is created, all the time.

You'll be learning from an ex-engineer and senior manager from Amazon and IMDb.

This course gets your hands on to some real live Twitter data, simulated streams of Apache access logs, and even data used to train machine learning models! You'll write and run real Spark Streaming jobs right at home on your own PC, and toward the end of the course, we'll show you how to take those jobs to a real Hadoop cluster and run them in a production environment too.

Across over 30 lectures and almost 6 hours of video content, you'll:

  • Get a crash course in the Scala programming language
  • Learn how Apache Spark operates on a cluster
  • Set up discretized streams with Spark Streaming and transform them as data is received
  • Use structured streaming to stream into dataframes in real-time
  • Analyze streaming data over sliding windows of time
  • Maintain stateful information across streams of data
  • Connect Spark Streaming with highly scalable sources of data, including Kafka, Flume, and Kinesis
  • Dump streams of data in real-time to NoSQL databases such as Cassandra
  • Run SQL queries on streamed data in real time
  • Train machine learning models in real time with streaming data, and use them to make predictions that keep getting better over time
  • Package, deploy, and run self-contained Spark Streaming code to a real Hadoop cluser using Amazon Elastic MapReduce.

This course is very hands-on, filled with achievable activities and exercises to reinforce your learning. By the end of this course, you'll be confidently creating Spark Streaming scripts in Scala, and be prepared to tackle massive streams of data in a whole new way. You'll be surprised at how easy Spark Streaming makes it!

Warning about Java 11 and Spark 2.4!
Introduction, and Getting Set Up
A brief introduction to the course, and then we'll get your development environment for Spark and Scala all set up on your desktop. A quick test application will confirm Spark is working on your system! Remember - be sure to install Spark 2.2 for this course, and install Java 8, not Java 9.
[Activity] Stream Live Tweets with Spark Streaming!
Get set up with a Twitter developer account, and run your first Spark Streaming application to listen to and print out live Tweets as they happen!
Udemy 101: Getting the Most From This Course
A Crash Course in Scala
Write simple code in the Scala programming language, and understand functional programming.
[Activity] Scala Basics: Part 1
We start our crash course in the Scala programming language by covering some basics of the language: types and variables, printing, and boolean comparisons.
[Exercise] Scala Basics: Part 2
Part 2 of our introduction to the basics of Scala programming, and a simple exercise to get you writing your own Scala code.
[Exercise] Flow Control in Scala
Our Scala crash course continues, illustrating various means of flow control in Scala. For loops, do/while loops, while loops, etc.
[Exercise] Functions in Scala
Scala is a functional programming language, and so understanding how functions work and are treated in Scala is hugely important! This lecture covers the fundamentals, and lets you put it into practice.
[Excercise] Data Structures in Scala
We wrap up our Scala crash course with commonly used data structures using in Spark with Scala. Tuples, lists, and maps.
  • To follow along with the examples, you'll need a personal computer. The course is filmed using Windows 10, but the tools we install are available for Linux and MacOS as well.
  • We'll walk through installing the required software in the first lecture: The Scala IDE, Spark, and a JDK.
  • My "Taming Big Data with Apache Spark - Hands On!" would be a helpful introduction to Spark in general, but it is not required for this course. A quick introduction to Spark is included.
  • The course includes a crash course in the Scala programming language if you're new to it; if you already know Scala, then great.
