This course is for data scientists (or aspiring data scientists) who want to get PRACTICAL training in PySpark (Python for Apache Spark) using REAL WORLD datasets and APPLICABLE coding knowledge that you ll use everyday as a data scientist! By enrolling in this course, you ll gain access to over 100 lectures, hundreds of example problems and quizzes and over 100,000 lines of code!

I m going to provide the essentials for what you need to know to be an expert in Pyspark by the end of this course, that I ve designed based on my EXTENSIVE experience consulting as a data scientist for clients like the IRS, the US Department of Labor and United States Veterans Affairs.

I ve structured the lectures and coding exercises for real world application, so you can understand how PySpark is actually used on the job. We are also going to dive into my custom functions that I wrote MYSELF to get you up and running in the MLlib API fast and make getting started building machine learning models a breeze! We will also touch on MLflow which will help us manage and track our model training and evaluation process in a custom user interface that will make you even more competitive on the job market!

    I absolutley LOVE the custom functions you added in the bonus lectures! They were so helpful. And generally, I love your approach to programming. It’s so elegant and graceful. The concepts you cover are exactly what I needed on my job. My team just got started using PySpark and I was really struggling getting started with other courses. But your course gave me some super practical functions and code I could implement right away. THANK YOU for making this course. I can see you poured your heart and sole into it.

    This course was definitely a great match for what I needed to learn pyspark. The instructor is definitely very Knowledgeable about the material and her teaching style is definitely engaging. The first time I haven t fallen asleep in a technical lecture. Ha ha Hahaha. I also really like the coding approach. It is very elegant and easy to follow.

    The instructor is very well spoken. You can tell she’s been doing data science stuff for a while AND that she’s a consultant. She seems to know the coding like the bak of her hand and comes up with really creative ways to tackle problems. The pace could be a bit faster for my person liking but to each their own. I just speed up the video speed.

    I like the way the way the instructor designed this course. The data frames section is very intuitive and seems to hit all the high points that a real data scientist would use. The bonus lectures are also super cool, especially the MLflow one. I had never seen that used before but will definitely use it at my job.

    This course is solid. The instructor knows her stuff in and out and has put together really awesome projects with cool datasets. Her approaches to solving the HW assignments and projects are also really creative and unique. My only gripe is that she doesn’t cover spark streaming.

    The instructor is very easy to listen to. I also like the design of the course. It’s much more practical than other courses that just go through each algorithm individually and don’t show how to compare them. Actual data scientists usually compare several algorithms against each other and that is exactly how the instructor approaches the ML portion of the course. You can tell she (YES SHE! also great) has a lot of experience and designed the course very thoughtfully. Hand clap for this one! I hope she adds more lectures in the future about using MLflow… that part was awesome!

I’m using PySpark on my job already and have learned A TON with this course that I am able to use for everyday use. The review notebooks have been SUPER useful because I can just search them for what I need. It’s like my own personal google for PySpark!

    This instructor definitely knows her stuff. She is super well spoken and seems to have put a lot of thought into the content of the course. It’s obvious that she has actually had a real job in this field because the examples are super practical which I haven’t seen in many other PySpark courses. The review notebooks she provides are also super useful. I’ve used the dataframes one several times already at my job, as well as the function that corrects for skewness.

    This course definitely helped as I was first starting out with PySpark at my job. I was asked to pick up this skill since our data was getting too large to work with and I had to learn quickly as we had a new feature being released that required it. So I can say this course gave me resources to do that FAST since all the examples were so practical, especially the machine learning stuff.

    Solid course design. I’ve been a python programmer as a data scientist for about 6 years now and looking to pick up some big data analytics skills and decided to try this course out among others. This one provides the most realistic examples and approaches to Machine Learning tasks. The bonus lectures are especially helpful as the cover some more advanced topics. I also appreciated the transitioning from Python to PySpark lecture…. that was helpful for Python veteran.

    This course is better than most. The homework assignments and projects are way more realistic to a real job setting and the slides in the lectures have graphics instead of just text which makes it way easier to pay attention. This is first PySpark course that I haven’t fallen asleep to 🙂

    This course is pretty well designed. The structure is different than most because it’s more practical. For example the ML section is divided up in supervised and unsupervised ML applications which it easier to think about which algorithms to consider for your project. I really like that aspect.
