Overcoming Common Performance Issues in Apache Spark


Overcoming Common Performance Issues in Apache Spark, Speed up your Spark Scripts and overcome errors.


Spark is a powerful framework for processing large datasets in parallel. But, with the complex architecture come frequent performance issues.

In my experience, it can be frustrating looking everywhere, trying to find a resource online that is worded in such a way that you fully understand the inner workings of Spark and how to address these issues. So, I created this course!

This is not a code-along course. This course assumes you already know how to code in Spark. Here, we’re talking about how you resolve the performance issues that you encounter during your development journey! We will walk through all of the theory & you’ll have actionable steps to take to resolve your performance issues.

In this course, we will cover off:

The Apache Spark Architecture

The type of deployment modes in Apache Spark

The structure of jobs in Apache Spark

How to handle the three main performance concerns in Spark

If you don’t yet know how to code in Spark, you can join my 60 minute crash course in PySpark, here on Udemy.

Let’s get to work understanding why your scripts are not performing as you may hope and resolve your performance issues together. Shuffle, Skew and Spill will be concerns of the past after this course!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
