Data Science
Big Data for Data Scientists

The amount of structured and unstructured data is exploding at a phenomenal speed. Python and R are NOT the best tools when it comes to analyzing big data.

As more and more companies move to build their data infrastructure in the cloud, new distributed computing frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark emerged as distributed platforms. Data Scientists who analyze big data not only need to adapt these new tools but also need to deeply understand the data infrastructures, database systems, as well as how to build data science pipelines in the Cloud platforms such as AWS and Azure.

So you have seen big data-related keywords mentioned countless times in data scientist job descriptions but don’t know how to get started? Have you learned big data theory from Udemy or Udacity but still don’t know how to apply the big data tools to complete a complex project from end to end?

What you will learn

Only know the textbook definition of big data? In this course, students will get familiar with enterprise data architecture and pipelines in several industries. It gives the students a clear picture of where big data fits in and how it can work along with the traditional enterprise data architecture.
  • Enterprise data flow in retail, banking, telecommunications
  • Data lake vs Traditional EDW
Whether you are tasked with using Hive to run ETL jobs, Presto/Athena as the query engine to build BI dashboards, or Elasticsearch database to query log files, this module covers the essential tools and you will learn not only how to write queries but also when to use each tool.
  • Batch jobs with Apache Hive
  • SQL on Hadoop with Presto and Amazon Athena
  • Full-text and log queries with Elasticsearch
  • Build real-time dashboards using Kibana and Superset
Master Apache Spark for Big Data
  • Work with low-level Spark RDD API for maximum flexibility
