The Spark distributed data processing platform provides an easy-to-implement tool for ingesting, streaming, and processing data from any source. In Spark in Action, Second Edition, you'll learn to take advantage of Spark's core features and incredible processing speed, with applications including real-time computation, delayed evaluation, and machine learning.
Unlike many Spark books written for data scientists, Spark in Action, Second Edition is designed for data engineers and software engineers who want to master data processing using Spark without having to learn a complex new ecosystem of languages and tools. You'll instead learn to apply your existing Java and SQL skills to take on practical, real-world challenges.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
