Spark Streaming

Categories: Scala, Spark, Streaming

Spark Streaming is one of the few additions that are available with Spark that uses its internal architecture and creates a Streaming processing framework to process data in real-time.

In this presentation, we will start with a small reintroduction to Spark and it’s architecture and what it does. Then we delve into streaming, what purpose does it serve, how to set up Spark Streaming and how to use it. We will discuss how to set it with time, how the internals work, and how also to integrate it with Kafka. We then will talk about some of the more high-end features like checkpointing, and windowing.
