You’re a software developer somewhat familiar with Apache Spark and how it’s used to analyze Big Data. You’ve been tasked with a Big Data analysis job and you want to rent space on a cluster to do it. But where to begin?

This is a hands-on course where Amazon Web Services pro Frank Kane shows you how to rent Amazon’s Elastic MapReduce service (EMR) at minimal cost and use it to run Spark scripts on top of a real Hadoop cluster. Kane’s approach is fun: You’ll learn a Big Data analysis process by actually deploying Spark on EMR to build a working movie recommendation engine using real movie ratings data.
