Scala Programming for Data Science
To light a fire, do you use a match, a lighter, or a torch? Depends on the size of the fire, much like the decisions that lead one to use Python, R, or Scala. Spark your interest in selecting the tools you need to tackle Big Data with ease, that will not just blow out.
Data Scientists tend to favor one of three programming languages, Python, R, or Scala. Which to choose? Learn Scala if you are an aspiring or a seasoned Data Scientist (or Data Engineer) who is planning to work with Apache Spark to tackle Big Data with ease.
This learning path has been developed by Lightbend (formerly Typesafe), the undisputed authority on all things Scala.
