Why Spark and Scala?
Using Spark from a functional and object-oriented language like Scala are changing the way "big data" applications are built and deployed. Moreover, this is just the beginning of a paradigm shift in data engineering and data science.
Now and in the foreseeable future, companies will compete based on their ability to process huge volumes of data and their proprietary algorithms to create competitive advantages. But, how will this be accomplished? Two prominent tools are Spark and Scala.
Stay ahead of the curve and get in now. Begin by learning Spark with Scala through tutorial examples.
Bonus Resources: Code Samples and Screencasts
Code samples are provided in a GitHub repository to download and use for learning or within your own projects.
Also, links to video screencasts of the author running examples and explaining tutorials are available from within the book.If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
