Lesson Descriptions

Lesson 1: Background Concepts

In Lesson 1, Doug introduces you to the important concepts you need to know to understand the big data, Hadoop, and Spark ecosystem. He begins with a description of big data and big data analytic concepts and then presents Hadoop as a big data platform. He then turns to the basics of Hadoop and the Spark language to finish up the lesson.

Lesson 2: Working with Scalable Systems

In Lesson 2, Doug introduces you to working with scalable systems. The lessons start with Doug covering scalable computing concepts and then turns to a freely-available Linux-based virtual machine that is runnable on most laptop and desktop systems. Using this virtual machine, you can run most of the examples in the lessons. Doug also uses the virtual machine to demonstrate some of the Linux command line analytic tools and introduce the Zeppelin web notebook.

Lesson 3: Using the Hadoop HDFS File System

Doug explains the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) in Lesson 3. He also presents a quick-start on how to use HDFS command line tools. Finally, he finishes up the lesson by explaining how to use the HDFS web interface.

Lesson 4: Using Hadoop MapReduce

In this lesson Doug explains and demonstrates how to use Hadoop MapReduce. He begins with an explanation of the MapReduce algorithm and how it operates in a clustered parallel environment. Doug then demonstrates how to run MapReduce examples and use the Hadoop streaming interface on your local machine. He concludes the lesson by demonstrating Hadoop performance using a four-node Hadoop cluster and the web-based MapReduce jobs interface.

Lesson 5: Using the Hive Scalable Database

In Lesson 5, Doug introduces the Hive scalable database. Based on Hadoop MapReduce, Hive is used to derive a new feature from an existing dataset. This important data engineering process is demonstrated from both the command line and the Zeppelin web notebook,

Lesson 6 : Using the Apache PySpark

In the final lesson of Part 1, Doug introduces PySpark. Based on the underlying Spark language, PySpark enables Python programmers to learn scalable data engineering. Before the hand-on lessons, Doug provides a solid introduction to Spark and PySpark operations. This background includes using the Spark web interface and demonstrates how to manage a SparkSession and a SparkContext for distributed operation. Examples of MapReduce programming and DataFrame operations are presented from both the command line and a Zeppelin notebook. The lesson concludes with the operations needed to transfer data to and from PySpark and Hive database tables.
