Project 2- Field: Transportation Industry 

Business requirement/ challenge - With the rise in pollution levels and the fuel prices, several Bicycle Sharing Programs have cropped up all around the globe. Bicycle sharing systems are a unique way of renting bicycles wherein the process of getting a membership, renting and thereafter returning a bike is completely automated through a network of joint locations intricately linked throughout the city. By assiduously deploying this unique system, individuals can rent a bike from one location and thereafter return it at some different place as and when required.

Apache Spark is a one of its kind, unique open-source in-memory, real time cluster processing framework. PySpark is used in streaming analytics systems like the recommendation system and the bank fraud detection system etc. Whereas Python is a high-level, general-purpose programming language. It has a heterogeneous range of libraries that assist several types of different applications. PySpark is a wonderful blend of Python and Spark. It caters to the Python API for Spark that permits the learner to gauge the very fundamental simplicity of Python along with the power of Apache Spark to handle Big Data.

RDD alludes to Resilient Distributed Dataset that is the building block of the Apache Spark. RDD is fundamental data structure of Apache Spark that is also an unchangeable and a distributed collection of objects. All the datasets in RDD are further subdivided into smaller logical partitions that can be later computed via different cluster nodes.

No, Pyspark is not a language. Python Spark Certification Training using PySpark is rather a Python API for Apache Spark through which Python developers can augment the power of Apache Spark and manifest in-memory processing applications.
