Requires separate registration
More and more applications have to provide scalable, high-throughput, fault-tolerant stream processing of live data streams. A very good example of this are all the Internet of Things – IoT – applications. Through this in-depth workshop you will get a jump-start on scaling distributed computing by taking an example time series application and coding through different aspects of working with such a dataset.
What you will learn
Entire workshop will take 3 hours. You’ll get up to speed on emerging techniques and technologies by analyzing case studies, develop new technical skills , share emerging best practices in big data (Hadoop, Spark, IoT, Kafka API and Apache HBase).
We will cover building an end to end distributed processing pipeline using various distributed stream input sources, to rapidly ingest, process and store large volumes of high speed data.
The depth and breadth of what’s covered at workshop requires basic knowledge of Scala and Java to work on exercises intended to teach you the features of Spark Streaming for processing live data streams ingested from sources like Apache Kafka, sockets or files, and storing the processed data in HBase.
Participants are requested to have laptops with internet access (wifi connection will be available) and the following software:
- JDK 8
- Maven 3.x or later
- Virtual Box
