Solving Delta Table Concurrency Issues Delta Lake is a powerful technology for bringing ACID transactions to your data lakes. It allows multiple operations to be performed on a dataset concurrently. However, dealing with concurrent operations can sometimes be tricky and may lead to issues such as ConcurrentAppendException, ConcurrentDeleteReadException, and ConcurrentDeleteDeleteException. In this blog post, we will explore why these issues occur and how to handle them effectively using a Python function, and how to avoid them with table design and using isolation levels and write conflicts.

Optimizing Databricks SQL: Achieving Blazing-Fast Query Speeds at Scale In this data age, delivering a seamless user experience is paramount. While there are numerous ways to measure this experience, one metric stands tall when evaluating the responsiveness of applications and databases: the P99 latency. Especially vital for SQL queries, this seemingly esoteric number is, in reality, a powerful gauge of the experience we provide to our customers. Why is it so crucial?
Simplifying Real-time Data Processing with Spark Streaming’s foreachBatch with working code Comprehensive guide to implementing a fully operational Streaming Pipeline that can be tailored to your specific needs. In this working example, you will learn how to parameterize the ForEachBatch function. Spark Streaming & foreachBatch Spark Streaming is a powerful tool for processing streaming data. It allows you to process data as it arrives, without having to wait for the entire dataset to be available.
A Productive Life: How to Parallelize Code Execution in Python Asynchronous programming has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in web development, where it is used to build high-performance, scalable applications. Python has built-in support for asynchronous programming through the asyncio module, which provides a powerful framework for writing asynchronous code. In this blog post, we will explore the asyncio module in Python 3.10 and learn how to run tasks in parallel using the new features introduced in this version.

In a single blog, we will teach you whatever needs to be understood about Streaming Joins. We will give you a working code which you can use for your next Streaming Pipeline. The steps involved: Create a fake dataset at scale Set a baseline using traditional SQL Define Temporary Streaming Views Inner Joins with optional Watermarking Left Joins with Watermarking The cold start edge case: withEventTimeOrder Cleanup What is Stream-Stream Join?
From Beginner to Pro: A Comprehensive Guide to understanding the Spark Streaming Checkpoint Spark is a distributed computing framework that allows for processing large datasets in parallel across a cluster of computers. When running a Spark job, it is not uncommon to encounter failures due to various issues such as network or hardware failures, software bugs, or even insufficient memory. One way to address these issues is to re-run the entire job from the beginning, which can be time-consuming and inefficient.
Delta Live Tables Advanced Q & A This is primarily written for those trying to handle edge cases. Q1.) How can a single/unified table be built with historical backfill and ongoing streaming Kafka data? The streaming table built using DLT allows writes to the table outside of the DLT. Thus, you can build and run your DLT pipeline with Kafka as a source, generating the physical table with a name. Then, you can do a streaming write to this table outside DLT.
