This two-day workshop is designed to teach developers how to implement data analytics using Apache Spark for Reactive applications. In this workshop, developers will use hands-on exercises to learn the principles of Apache Spark programming and idioms for specific problems, such as event stream processing, SQL-based analysis on structured data in files, integration with Reactive frameworks like Akka, as well as Hadoop and related tools, and advanced analytics such as machine learning and graph algorithms.


  • Understand how to use the Spark Scala APIs to implement various data analytics algorithms for offline (batch­mode) and event­streaming applications
  • Understand Spark internals
  • Understand Spark performance considerations
  • Understand how to test and deploy Spark applications
  • Understand the basics of integrating Spark with Mesos, Hadoop, and Akka


50% theory, 50% practise


  • Experience with Scala, such as completion of Fast Track to Scala course
  • Experience with SQL, machine learning, and other Big Data tools will be helpful, but not required.

Target audience
