Description : Working with big data can be complex and challenging, in part because of the multiple analysis frameworks and tools required. Apache Spark is a big data processing framework perfect for analyzing near-real-time streams and discovering historical patterns in batched data sets. But Spark goes much further than other frameworks. By including machine learning and graph processing capabilities, it makes many specialized data processing platforms obsolete. Spark's unified framework and programming model significantly lowers the initial infrastructure investment, and Spark's core abstractions are intuitive for most Scala, Java, and Python developers. Spark in Action teaches readers to use Spark for stream and batch data processing. It starts with an introduction to the Spark architecture and ecosystem followed by a taste of Spark's command line interface. Readers then discover the most fundamental concepts and abstractions of Spark, particularly Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs) and the basic data transformations that RDDs provide. The first part of the book covers writing Spark applications using the the core APIs. Readers also learn how to work with structured data using Spark SQL, how to process near-real time data with Spark Streaming, how to apply machine learning algorithms with Spark MLlib, how to apply graph algorithms on graph-shaped data using Spark GraphX, and an introduction to Spark clustering. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Description : eGirls, eCitizens is a landmark work that explores the many forces that shape girls’ and young women’s experiences of privacy, identity, and equality in our digitally networked society. Drawing on the multi-disciplinary expertise of a remarkable team of leading Canadian and international scholars, as well as Canada’s foremost digital literacy organization, MediaSmarts, this collection presents the complex realities of digitized communications for girls and young women as revealed through the findings of The eGirls Project (www.egirlsproject.ca) and other important research initiatives. Aimed at moving dialogues on scholarship and policy around girls and technology away from established binaries of good vs bad, or risk vs opportunity, these seminal contributions explore the interplay of factors that shape online environments characterized by a gendered gaze and too often punctuated by sexualized violence. Perhaps most importantly, this collection offers first-hand perspectives collected from girls and young women themselves, providing a unique window on what it is to be a girl in today’s digitized society. Keywords: Privacy, identity, equality, online environment, women, cyberfeminism, policy
