Apache Spark & Scala

Apache Spark is an open source, general data processing framework in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem that make it easy to develop fast, end-to-end Big Data applications combining batch, streaming, and interactive analytics on all your data.

Scala is a programming language for general software applications. Scala has full support for functional programming and a very strong static type system.

    Why learn Apache Spark & Scala?

    According to Wikipedia “Apache Spark is an open-source data analytics cluster computing framework. Spark isn’t tied to the two-stage MapReduce paradigm, and guarantees performance up to a 100 times quicker than Hadoop MapReduce for certain applications. Spark provides primitives for in-memory cluster computing that enables user programs to load data into a cluster’s memory and question it repeatedly, making it well suited to machine learning algorithms”.

    As we live in the era of ever growing data, the need for analyzing it for meaningful business insights becomes more and more significant. There are totally different Big Data processing alternatives like Hadoop, Spark, and Storm etc. Spark, but is exclusive in providing batch furthermore as streaming capabilities, thus making it a preferred choice for lightning fast Big Data Analysis platforms
