    What is Apache Spark ?
     
    Just Enough Scala

    Spark was developed in Scala, a high-level programming language that combines object-oriented and functional programming. We look at the definition of variables, functions and the use of collections in Scala.

    15.30h
    Coffee/Tea and Refreshments
     
    Spark Core API

    We look at the Spark Core API from the perspective of the "Data Developer": from prototyping in the Spark Shell to the compilation and packaging of Spark applications for a cluster, and how this application is efficiently executed on a cluster.

    The following topics will be covered:

    18.00h
    Dinner buffet with an extensive choice of cold and warm choices
    18.45h
    Shared Variables

    Having read-write shared variables across Spark tasks running on clusters would be inefficient. However, Spark does provide two limited types of shared variables for two common usage patterns: broadcast variables and accumulators.

    21.00h
    End of Day 1 of this Workshop
    13.30h - 14.00h
    Welcome to Day 2 with Coffee/Tea and Croissants
    14.00h
    Beyond Spark's Core API

    Besides Spark's core module, we look at a number of modules that were added to the Spark stack:

    18.00h
    Dinner buffet with an extensive choice of cold and warm choices
    18.45h
    Putting it all together

    A more extended, guided exercise in which most of the Spark modules are combined, showing the true power of Spark.

    21.00h
