Title: Spark SQL and DataFrames

Apache Spark is a General-purpose computing engine that has in-memory computing capabilities. It can be used for a variety of workloads like Batch processing, Iterative problems, stream processing, etc. It is designed to be highly scalable and provides various APIs like Scala, Python, R, Java, and SQL. It can be easily integrated with other BIG Data tools as well.

During this workshop, we will discuss how we can use spark DataFrames for Data Analysis and working with various different data Sources like HIVE, CSV, Parquet etc.
