Building Intelligent Applications from Scratch with Apache Spark and OpenShift

Afternoon | 14:30 - 18:30


Description:

Intelligent applications employ machine learning and large-scale data processing to improve with longevity and popularity. Most of the applications you can’t live without today are intelligent, and it’s an easy bet that the applications you’ll be most excited about developing tomorrow will be intelligent as well. It’s an even easier bet that you’ll want to be deploying tomorrow’s applications on a contemporary container platform with a great developer workflow like OpenShift.

Intelligent applications pose some new challenges for developers, but this hands-on lab will show you how to navigate them confidently. You'll learn how to develop an insightful application on OpenShift with Apache Spark from the ground up, using a totally cutting-edge open-source stack. We’ll cover:

·Why contemporary analytics frameworks like Apache Spark are a good fit for microservice architectures;
·A crash course in Apache Spark and some essential data science techniques;
·How to deploy Apache Spark as part of an OpenShift application; and
·Building a data-driven application from the ground up.
at make this all possible.

Requirements:

This lab is largely self-contained: the only prerequisite is some familiarity with Python.
