Event Description:
Spark is continually advancing its capabilities. Originally the only distributed collection offered by Spark was the Resilient Distributed Dataset (RDD). Since then, DataFrame and Dataset have been introduced. In this presentation we will review the three Spark distributed collections, their API differences, and also compare their performance in Spark versions 1.6 and 2.1.

Target audience: Data Scientist, Data Engineer, Data Analyst and Spark Developers

Level: Intermediate to Advance
