Take your knowledge to the next level with Cloudera’s Data Scientist Training

The training is designed for data scientists who currently use Python or R to work with smaller datasets on a single machine and who need to scale up their analyses and machine learning models to large datasets on distributed clusters. Data engineers and developers with some knowledge of data science and machine learning may also find this workshop useful.

Technologies

Participants gain practical skills and hands-on experience with data science tools including:

  • Spark, Spark SQL, and Spark MLlib
  • PySpark and sparklyr
  • Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW)
  • Hue

Audience  & Prerequisites

Workshop participants should have a basic understanding of Python or R and some experience exploring and analyzing data and developing statistical or machine learning models. Knowledge of Hadoop or Spark is not required.

The workshop includes brief lectures, interactive demonstrations, hands-on exercises, and discussions covering topics including:

  • Overview of data science and machine learning at scale
  • Overview of the Hadoop ecosystem
  • Working with HDFS data and Hive tables using Hue
  • Introduction to Cloudera Data Science Workbench
  • Overview of Apache Spark 2
  • Reading and writing data
  • Inspecting data quality
