Data is no more static and offloading it for reporting in big batches once a day is not enough. Data is also not stored only in databases and useful data for your business can be generated from external sources (facebook , real time payments information from webhooks by a bank, 3rd party services) in real time. Learn how to take advantage of such data to ingest and analyse in realtime by developing streaming applications.

Would like a deep dive in the Big Data Streaming Architectures and Techniques? Then you are in the right place. During this course we will focus on Streaming Big Data Applications, we will build, monitor and manipulate data pipelines with tools and frameworks such as Apache Spark

Who should attend

IT Professionals interested in crossing over into development territory, in Big Data domain.


  • SQL fluency
  • Python basics
  • An overview of Batch Big Data Processing
  • Some experience with queueing systems (optional) or Change Data Capture/Log Shipping engines found in modern relational databases
