Struggling to conquer Apache Spark?

Learning is hard enough as it is but when you bring in distributed computing frameworks in sophisticated programming languages - things don't get any easier. While self-study can certainly help, without a good guide, things are always more difficult than they should be. That's why I created Spark Tutorials, to make it easier to learn and use Apache Spark. is here to provide simple, easy to follow tutorials to help you get up and running quickly. You'll learn the foundational abstractions in Apache Spark from RDDs to DataFrames and MLLib. Start off with some of the articles below.
