Spark is a technology at the forefront of distributed computing that offers a more abstract but more powerful API. This module can be taught using either the Python or Scala APIs, and includes the basics of Scala like map, flatmap, for comprehension, and data structures. We cover core concepts of Spark like resilient distributed datasets, memory caching, actions, transformations, tuning, and optimization. Students get to build functioning applications from end to end and learn critical tooling around Spark (sbt, jvm) to make them more productive. They apply that knowledge to directly developing, building, and deploying Spark jobs to run on large, real-world datasets in the cloud (AWS and Google Cloud Platform).

"The data science skills I sharpened at The Data Incubator helped me analyze diversity in STEM education, model SaaS stock prices, and compare industry growth rates. The instructor's background in quantitative finance made for relevant use cases that benefit not only data scientists, but also data-driven finance people like myself."
"From day one I was getting my hands dirty working with data using industry-relevant tools. Having completed the program I'm now better equipped to manage engineering and product teams, and able to conduct sophisticated ad-hoc analysis. Everyone at TDI blew me away; truly exceptional."
"Their heavy focus on applied learning meant that I was working on real data and solving real problems right from the start. While lectures were a valuable component of their courses, the real learning took place while working on projects. These projects were practical, engaging, and instructive, and generally great opportunities to get hands-on experience with what I had learned in the lectures."
