Apache Spark is a popular cluster computing framework used for performing large scale data analysis. This tutorial will introduce cluster computing using SparkR: the R language API for Spark. SparkR provides a distributed data frame API that enables structured data processing with a syntax familiar to R users. In this tutorial we will provide example workflows for ingesting data, performing data analysis and doing interactive queries using distributed data frames. Finally, participants will be able to try SparkR on realworld datasets using Databricks R notebooks to get hands-on experience using SparkR.
