This four-day workshop covers enterprise data science and machine learning using Apache Spark in Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW). Participants use Spark SQL to load, explore, cleanse, join, and analyze data and Spark MLlib to specify, train, evaluate, tune, and deploy machine learning pipelines. They dive into the foundations of the Spark architecture and execution model necessary to effectively configure, monitor, and tune their Spark applications. Participants also learn how Spark integrates with key components of the Cloudera platform such as HDFS, YARN, Hive, Impala, and Hue as well as their favorite Python or R packages.
The workshop is designed for data scientists who use Python or R to work with small datasets on a single machine and who need to scale up their data science and machine learning workflows to large datasets on distributed clusters. Data engineers, data analysts, developers, and solution architects who collaborate with data scientists will also find this workshop valuable. Workshop participants walk through an end-to-end data science and machine learning workflow based on realistic scenarios and datasets from a fictitious technology company. The material is presented through a sequence of brief lectures, interactive demonstrations, extensive hands-on exercises, and lively discussions. The demonstrations and exercises are conducted in Python (with PySpark) using Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW). Supplemental examples using R (with sparklyr) are provided.
