The course content is designed in a way that is Simple to follow and understand, expressive, exhaustive, practical with live coding, replete with quizzes, and rich with state-of-the-art and up-to-date knowledge of this field.
It’s true that Scala is not among the most-loved coding languages but don’t let this minor discomfort bother you. Scala is doubtless one of the most in-demand skills for data scientists and data engineers. And the reason for this is not far to seek: The supply of professionals with Scala skills is a long way from catching up with the demand.
The well-thought-out quizzes and mini-projects in this course will cover all the important aspects and it will make your Scala learning journey that much easier. This course includes an overview of Hadoop and Spark with a hands-on project with Scala Spark. Right through the course, every theoretical explanation is followed by practical implementation.
This course is designed to reflect the most in-demand Scala skills that you will start using right away at the workplace. The 6 mini-projects and one Scala Spark project included in this course are vital components of this course. These projects present you with a hands-on opportunity to experiment for yourself with trial and error. You get a chance to learn from the mistakes you commit. Importantly, it’s easy to understand the potential gaps that might exist between theory and practice.
Scala, a power-packed language, has the capability to leverage most of the functions in Python, such as designing machine learning models. You can use this high-level language for an assortment of applications, from web apps to machine learning.
II. PySpark and AWS
The hottest buzzwords in the Big Data analytics industry are Python and Apache Spark. PySpark supports the collaboration of Python and Apache Spark. In this course, you’ll start right from the basics and proceed to the advanced levels of data analysis. From cleaning data to building features and implementing machine learning (ML) models, you’ll learn how to execute end-to-end workflows using PySpark.
Right through the course, you’ll be using PySpark for performing data analysis. You’ll explore Spark RDDs, Dataframes, and a bit of Spark SQL queries. Also, you’ll explore the transformations and actions that can be performed on the data using Spark RDDs and data frames. You’ll also explore the ecosystem of Spark and Hadoop and their underlying architecture. You’ll use the Databricks environment for running the Spark scripts and explore it as well.
Finally, you’ll have a taste of Spark with AWS cloud. You’ll see how we can leverage AWS storages, databases, and computations, and how Spark can communicate with different AWS services and get its required data.
As this course is a detailed compilation of all the basics, it will motivate you to make quick progress and experience much more than what you have learned. At the end of each concept, you will be assigned Homework/tasks/activities/quizzes along with solutions. This is to evaluate and promote your learning based on the previous concepts and methods you have learned. Most of these activities will be coding-based, as the aim is to get you up and running with implementations.
III. Data Scraping and Data Mining from Beginner to Professional
Data scraping is the technique of extracting data from the internet. Data scraping is used for getting the data available on different websites and APIs. This also involves automating the web flows for extracting the data from different web pages.
This course is designed for beginners. We’ll spend sufficient time to lay a solid groundwork for newbies. Then, we will go far deep gradually with a lot of practical implementations where every step will be explained in detail.
As this course is essentially a compilation of all the basics, you will move ahead at a steady rate. You will experience more than what you have learned. At the end of every concept, we will be assigning you Home Work/assignments/activities/quizzes along with solutions. They will assess / (further build) your learning based on the previous data scraping and data mining concepts and methods. Most of these activities are designed to get you up and running with implementations.
The 4 hands-on projects included in this course are the most important part of this course. These projects allow you to experiment for yourself with trial and error. You will learn from your mistakes. Importantly, you will understand the potential gaps that may exist between theory and practice.
Data Scraping is undoubtedly a rewarding career that allows you to solve some of the most interesting real-world problems. You will be rewarded with a fabulous salary package, too. With a core understanding of Data Scraping, you can fine-tune your workplace skills and ensure emerging career growth.
In this course, we'll go through the basics of MongoDB. We'll be using MongoDB to develop an understanding of the NoSQL databases. We’ll explore the basic, Create, Read, Update, and Delete operations in MongoDB. We’ll explore in detail the MongoDB query operators and project operators. Following that we’ll learn about MongoDB update operators. In the end, we’ll move to explore MongoDB with Node and Python. We’ll wind up this course with two projects, consisting of MongoDB with Django in which we’ll develop a CRUD-based application using Django and MongoDB and then we’ll implement an ETL pipeline using PySpark to dump the data in the MongoDB.
This course is designed for beginners. We’ll spend enough time to make a solid ground for newbies and they will go far deep gradually with a lot of practical implementations where every step will be explained in detail.
As this course is a compilation of all the basics, it will encourage you to move ahead and experience more than what you have learned. By the end of every concept, we will be assigning you Home Works/tasks/activities/quizzes along with solutions that will evaluate / (further build) your learning based on the previous concepts and methods. Several of these activities will be coding based to get you up and running with implementations.
With the increase of data there is a need to manage that, and not only manage it but also get useful data and insights out of it for business analytics and correct decision making, and for that the companies are actively looking for big data engineers. The major issue with big data is that it's so humongous that using regular data analysis techniques it is not possible to analyze it. Also due to continuously increasing data sources like IOT, SQL databases, NoSQL databases, social media platforms, point of sales, and streaming data it is hard to even manage all this data through conventional methods, and performing analytics on it is, as I just mentioned, is way beyond this. So we need new techniques and platforms for not only managing this data but also performing analysis on it and MongoDB supports all of this. We'll understand and learn using MongoDB which, in a nutshell, is a NoSQL database. All these skills are highly in demand.
