Description

Want to ramp up your knowledge of Amazon’s big data web services and launch your first big data application on the cloud? Ian Meyers, Pratim Das, and Ian Robinson walk you through simplifying big data processing as a data bus comprising ingest, store, process, and visualize and building a big data application in real time using a combination of open source technologies, including Apache Hadoop, Spark, and Zeppelin, as well as AWS managed services such as Amazon EMR, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon S3. Along the way, they review architecture design patterns for big data applications and give you access to a take-home lab so that you can rebuild and customize the application yourself.
