Valid AWS Account to setup EMR Cluster
One of the key aspects to work on Big Data projects using technologies such as Spark and Hadoop is to have an appropriate development environment. By the end of the course, one will have the development environment ready to build Spark-based applications leveraging the power of multi-node clusters such as EMR, Databricks, etc.
Even though interactive CLIs are effective in learning, they are not good enough for the collaborative development of Spark Applications. Here is what you will be doing to set up an Environment for Application Development using Big Data Technologies such as Hadoop and Spark.
Overview of IDEs or Integrated Development Environment Tools such as VS Code, Pycharm, etc.
Setup Visual Studio Code on Windows or Mac along with Remote Development Extension Pack
Setup Multi-Node Big Data Cluster using AWS Elastic Map Reduce aka AWS EMR.
Validate Connectivity to Master Node of AWS EMR Cluster
Setup Workspace on Master Node of AWS EMR Cluster using Visual Studio Code Remote Development Extension Pack.
Understand Application Development Life Cycle using Spark.
Validate the Application locally using spark-submit command.
Setup Required Data Sets in AWS s3
Build the Spark Application Bundle as a zip file and deploy using both clients as well as cluster mode.
Run Spark Application using CLI on Master Node of the cluster.
Deploy the Spark Application as Step using EMR Cluster
Who this course is for:
University or College Students who want to learn how to Setup Big Data Development Environment
Application Developers and Data Engineers who want to setup development environment to develop Big Data or Data Engineering Applications using technologies like Hadoop and Spark
Big Data Testers to understand how to use IDEs to connect to the Clusters for data validations based on test cases.
