    web scraping to transform unstructured web data typically in HTML format into structured data we can store and analyze Python provides a number of powerful tools to quickly create custom web scrapers WHAT YOU WILL LEARN Gathering data from online sources is a critical tool in the toolbox of every data engineer researcher reporter and analyst The purpose of this workshop is to provide you with a solid understanding of web scraping concepts and equip you with the tools and knowledge to create your own custom web scrapers using Python COURSE OUTLINE The workshop will cover the following An overview of Basic HTML The Document Object Model DOM CSS Selectors and XPath Using CSS Selectors and XPath to identify the web page elements you want to extract Creating a web scraper to extract tabular data Creating a web scraper to extract complex data Looping your web scraper to extract data from multiple web pages Methods for safe web scraping By the end of this workshop you will be able to build and run your own custom web scrapers using Python MORE INFO For more info and registration see the DDL course page We re Hiring Communications Manager Mon 2015 12 28 09 17 Data Community DC

52 Data Community DC and District Data Labs are hosting a Fast Data Applications with Spark Python workshop on Saturday January 23rd from 9am 5pm Register before January 9th for an early bird discount OVERVIEW Hadoop has made the world of Big Data possible by providing a framework for distributed computing on economical commercial off the shelf hardware Hadoop 2 0 implements a distributed file system HDFS and a computing framework YARN that allows distributed applications to easily harness the power of clustered computing on extremely large data sets Over the past decade the primary application framework has been MapReduce a functional programming paradigm that lends itself extremely well to designing distributed applications but carries with it a lot of computational overhead Many excellent analytical applications and algorithms have been written in MapReduce creating an ecosystem that has made Hadoop continue to grow as an effective tool However more complex algorithms especially machine learning algorithms often require extremely complex chains of jobs to conform to the MapReduce functional paradigm Enter Spark an open source Apache project that uses the cluster resource daemons of Hadoop particularly HDFS and other Hadoop data stores but allows developers to break out of the MapReduce paradigm and write distributed applications that are much faster Spark also distributes applications to a cluster by using distributed executor processes Spark developers write applications that are intended to work on local data however unlike with MapReduce these executors communicate with each other and can share data via an external store Spark is intended to work with Hadoop data stores but can also be run in stand alone mode If you already have a Hadoop 2 0 cluster then Spark can be run with YARN The flexibility that Spark provides means that it can be used to implement more complex algorithms and applications previously unavailable to MapReduce patterns Spark can run in memory making it hundreds of times faster than disk based MapReduce and provides a programming API in Scala Java and Python which makes it more accessible to developers Spark has an interactive command line interface to quickly interact with data on the cluster applications for writing SQL like queries and a fairly complete machine learning library It can also execute graph algorithms that were previously unable to be ported to MapReduce frameworks WHAT YOU WILL LEARN In this one day workshop we will introduce Spark at a high level context Spark is fundamentally different than writing MapReduce jobs so no prior Hadoop experience is needed You will learn how to interact with Spark on the command line and conduct rapid in memory data analyses We will then work on writing Spark applications to perform large cluster based analyses including SQL like aggregations machine learning applications and graph algorithms The course will be conducted in Python using PySpark COURSE OUTLINE The workshop will cover the following topics Interacting with Spark via the Spark Shell Interacting with RDDs and other distributed data Creating Spark applications in Python Submitting Spark applications to the cluster Aggregations and Queries using Spark SQL Machine Learning with Spark MLLib Graph computing with Spark GraphX After this course you should understand how to build distributed applications using Python and Spark particularly for conducting analyses You will be introduced to Spark applications and be able to run Spark SQL queries on a distributed database conduct machine learning with SparkMLib and execute graph algorithms with Spark GraphX More Info Registration DC Nightowls becomes DC2 Digital Nomads Fri 2015 12 11 21 41 For several years now the DC
