Spark Tutorials - Spark Language Selection | Scala vs Python

5.6 K


In this video, I am going to talk about the choices of the Spark programming languages. You already know that Spark APIs are available in Scala, Java, and Python. Recently Spark also started supporting the R programming language. Spark APIs are available in these four main languages. However, there are few more language bindings that the open source community is working. The language selection is a common question among the Spark learners. Should I use Scala or Python? Is there any downside of choosing Python over Scala? I often get this question from many people. As the number of Spark language bindings are growing, this question is becoming more and more critical. I am not going to recommend a language to you. Instead, I will talk about the various considerations that should form a basis for your language selection. With that knowledge, you will be empowered to take an appropriate decision.
