PySpark is the collaboration of Apache Spark and Python. This course covers all the fundamentals of Apache Spark with Python and teaches you everything you need to know about developing Spark applications using PySpark, the Python API for Spark. At the end of this course, you will gain in-depth knowledge about Apache Spark and general big data analysis.

This course helps you get comfortable with PySpark, explaining what it has to offer and how it can enhance your data science work. We’ll first get into the Spark ecosystem, detailing its advantages over other data science platforms, APIs, and tool sets.

Next, we’ll look at the DataFrame API and how it’s the platform’s answer to many big data challenges. We’ll also go over Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs), the building blocks of Spark.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
