Leveraging Big Data with Apache Spark at KPN ICT Consulting

Amersfoort, the Netherlands, 22 June 2018 — Data Science Workshops developed and delivered an in-company training about PySpark to fourteen Young Professionals at KPN ICT Consulting.

On day one, we ensured that everybody had a good understanding of the fundamental Python concepts such as list comprehensions and lambda functions. In the remaining three days, we covered nearly every Spark topic ranging from preparing data with RDDs and DataFrames to doing machine learning with Estimators and Pipelines.
