I would like to ask about your video coures - Introduction to Apache Spark.
What language is used for examples? Is there by chance Python?
Help get this topic noticed by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, or email.
The first video in that series has this description below it, which answers your question:
"Get started with Spark, beginning with download and install for Spark plus Java JDK 6/7/8 and Python 2.7 as dependencies."
I hope that helps,
