First Steps with Spark - Screencast #1

This screencast marks the beginning of a series of hands-on screencasts we will be publishing to help new users get up and running in minutes. In this screencast, we:

  1. Download and build Spark on a local machine (running OS X, but should be a similar process for Linux or Unix).
  2. Introduce the API using the Spark interactive shell to explore a file.

Check out the next spark screencast in the series, Spark Screencast #2 - Overview of Spark Documentation.
