Free Apache Spark course with Docker image

My friends over at Big Data University just launched a refresh of their Apache Spark course. Spark is an engine for processing and mining large amounts of data quickly.

The course takes advantage of a Docker image for Spark. Docker provides a way to run Spark on a typical laptop without getting a beefy server.

Spark’s on my personal to-learn list, so I just pencilled in a slot to take the course myself on my calendar.
