[Big Data] Spark Empowerment Workshop for Financial Institutions
At the end of March we held our Spark Empowerment Workshop. The workshop was organized for the members of the Big Data project team of our user - one of the largest banks in Croatia. It lasted for 5 days, and attendees explored all the basic and advanced technical aspects and features of Apache Spark - a distributed general-purpose large-scale data processing engine. In the end of the workshop, the attendees were interested in hearing more.
The instructor was the CTO of SV Group, Petar Zečević. At the workshop, he gave an overview of Apache Spark describing its main components - Core, SQL, Streaming, GraphX and ML - and demonstrated how to use them using short code examples. The trainees then learned how to use Spark API in practice and real-world data through practical tasks. Practical examples and tasks are what the participants liked the most.
Spark Empowerment Workshop is a part of SV Group's ongoing training offerings. The workshop is adaptable to beginners as well as to more advanced users. Likewise, its duration adjusts to the needs of the client. It can take several hours, all day or several days. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
