Assuming you’ve read the first article on Functional Programming in Scala and Python, you should be ready to sink your teeth into a few practical Spark problems
There’s a lot of hype around Spark and Big Data in general, especially around the concepts of Functional Programming. Problem is, Functional Programming is a tall order for a standard Java programmer.
The goal of this post is to get you up to speed in the very basics of Functional Programming as they’ll later relate to Spark. I’ll be primarily covering Scala with Python alternate versions.
Even the most ardent adherent of skinny controllers will find themselves plagued by the ferocious number of filters demanded for any non-trivial search on their models. Given enough attributes, you’ll notice your controller starting to look a little hairy
