Big Data Architecture intro workshop

This workshop is addressed to anyone interested in Big Data and the overall architectural components required to build a data solution. We will use Apache Zeppelin for some data exploration but otherwise the workshop will be more a theoretical one – allowing enough time to overall understand which are the possible components and their role in a Big Data Architecture. We will not go in depth in the components/solutions but the aim is to understand the overall role of possible components in architecting a big data solution.

The scope of this workshop is to make the participants familiar with the Big Data architecture components and has as prerequisite the overall understanding of IT architectures.

Date: February 24th, 2018, 9:00 – 13:00

Modeling your data for analytics with Apache Cassandra and Spark SQL

This session is intended for those looking to understand better how to model data for queries in Apache Cassandra and Apache Cassandra + Spark SQL. The session will help you understand the concept of secondary indexes and materialized views in Cassandra and the way Spark SQL can be used in conjunction with Cassandra in order to be able to run complex analytical queries. We assume you are familiar with Cassandra & Spark SQL (but it’s not mandatory since we will explain the basic concepts behind data modeling in Cassandra and Spark SQL). The whole workshop will be run in Cassandra Query Language and SQL and we will use Zeppelin as the interface towards Cassandra + Spark SQL.

Analytics with Cassandra and Spark SQL Workshop

We continue the series of Spark SQL and Cassandra with more hands on exercises on the integration between the 2 solutions, working on open Movielens data. This workshop addresses those who know the basics of Cassandra & CQL and have SQL knowledge. Spark is not mandatory, although would be good to know it’s basic concepts ( RDD, transformations, actions) since we will not address these concepts in the workshop but we will mention them in several occasions. Without Spark basic concepts you will still understand the aggregations that can be done at Spark SQL level but you will not fully understand how Spark SQL integrates in the whole Spark system.
 In this workshop you will understand the optimal way of making queries in a solution composed of Apache Cassandra and Apache Spark.
Prerequisites: Cassandra Concepts knowledge, SQL knowledge
