Amazon S3 For Beginners – Amazon Professional web hosting

About this Course

As a website owner, you will face many challenges when it comes to hosting your blog, website, and online business presence.

Amazon S3 For Beginners - Amazon Professional web hosting

This is because you are relying purely on your web hosting company to support you.

What happens when you get bigger, in terms of receiving lots of visitors?

What happens when you launch a product or service and you get a flood of traffic that will crash your server?

What usually happens is that your website slows down, and your user experience becomes painful and visitors just leave.

Or worse, your web hosting company decides to terminate your account because you’re using too many server resources, or they ask you to pay for a dedicated server which can cost you $150-$300 extra per month.

You cannot afford to lose money due to a minor oversight that would’ve taken just a few hours of your time.

To prevent this from happening, you typically want to host your files on an external server. However, the problem with this is that those costs will add up fast and you’ll simply run into the same situation.

So, in other words, we recommend that you host your images, large video, audio files, or other files on Amazon S3.

Amazon S3 allows you to host very large files and utilize their global reach and super-fast speeds for a very low cost.

The problem with this though is that if you read their technical documentation, it is very difficult to understand for someone who is just getting started.

So, if you don’t have hours to spend wading through the text, we’ve decided to create a video course that will allow you to understand how to do all of this in less than a couple of hours.

Soon you will be on your way to hosting your big files and protecting them.

Basic knowledge
  • You will need a computer, a website (or blog) and basic knowledge in all of the above
What you will learn
  • Whoever takes this course is already thinking big about their website or blog. After this course, you will be able to launch a product or service and get a flood of traffic that wouldn’t hurt your server. You will be ready to get bigger in terms of receiving a lot of visitors

Spark for Data Science with Python

Taught by a 4 person team including 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts. This team has decades of practical experience in working with Java and with billions of rows of data.

exploratory_data_-378225

Get your data to fly using Spark for analytics, machine learning and data science 

Let’s parse that.

  • What’s Spark? If you are an analyst or a data scientist, you’re used to having multiple systems for working with data. SQL, Python, R, Java, etc. With Spark, you have a single engine where you can explore and play with large amounts of data, run machine learning algorithms and then use the same system to productionize your code.
  • Analytics: Using Spark and Python you can analyze and explore your data in an interactive environment with fast feedback. The course will show how to leverage the power of RDDs and Dataframes to manipulate data with ease.
  • Machine Learning and Data Science : Spark’s core functionality and built-in libraries make it easy to implement complex algorithms like Recommendations with very few lines of code. We’ll cover a variety of datasets and algorithms including PageRank, MapReduce and Graph datasets.

What’s Covered:

Lot’s of cool stuff ..

  • Music Recommendations using Alternating Least Squares and the Audioscrobbler dataset
  • Dataframes and Spark SQL to work with Twitter data
  • Using the PageRank algorithm with Google web graph dataset
  • Using Spark Streaming for stream processing
  • Working with graph data using the Marvel Social network dataset

.. and of course all the Spark basic and advanced features:

  • Resilient Distributed Datasets, Transformations (map, filter, flatMap), Actions (reduce, aggregate)
  • Pair RDDs , reduceByKey, combineByKey
  • Broadcast and Accumulator variables
  • Spark for MapReduce
  • The Java API for Spark
  • Spark SQL, Spark Streaming, MLlib and GraphFrames (GraphX for Python)

Using discussion forums

Please use the discussion forums on this course to engage with other students and to help each other out. Unfortunately, much as we would like to, it is not possible for us at Loonycorn to respond to individual questions from students:-(

We’re super small and self-funded with only 2 people developing technical video content. Our mission is to make high-quality courses available at super low prices.

The only way to keep our prices this low is to *NOT offer additional technical support over email or in-person*. The truth is, direct support is hugely expensive and just does not scale.

We understand that this is not ideal and that a lot of students might benefit from this additional support. Hiring resources for additional support would make our offering much more expensive, thus defeating our original purpose.

It is a hard trade-off.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Who is the target audience?

  • Yep! Analysts who want to leverage Spark for analyzing interesting datasets
  • Yep! Data Scientists who want a single engine for analyzing and modelling data as well as productionizing it.
  • Yep! Engineers who want to use a distributed computing engine for batch or stream processing or both
Basic knowledge
  • The course assumes knowledge of Python. You can write Python code directly in the PySpark shell. If you already have IPython Notebook installed, we’ll show you how to configure it for Spark
  • For the Java section, we assume basic knowledge of Java. An IDE which supports Maven, like IntelliJ IDEA/Eclipse would be helpful
  • All examples work with or without Hadoop. If you would like to use Spark with Hadoop, you’ll need to have Hadoop installed (either in pseudo-distributed or cluster mode).
What you will learn
  • Use Spark for a variety of analytics and Machine Learning tasks
  • Implement complex algorithms like PageRank or Music Recommendations
  • Work with a variety of datasets from Airline delays to Twitter, Web graphs, Social networks and Product Ratings
  • Use all the different features and libraries of Spark : RDDs, Dataframes, Spark SQL, MLlib, Spark Streaming and GraphX
