Project 4 requires some knowledge in today's lecture. I will explain more about this project during the lecture.
You have three weeks to work on this project.
This project is the most difficult one, and also the most time-consuming one. There is no new lab in this week, and the lab time is for you to do this project .The tutor will help you if you have some questions or meet some problems.
My apology for the late release of the sample input and output.
Please contact me if you meet any problem or have any question.
Remember that the deadline is this Sunday.
The marks of project 2 will be published by next weekend.
As next week is the recess week, someone may have some traveling plans, and thus I extend the submission deadline of Project 3 to 09:59:59 pm on 8th Oct, one week later. I hope this can help you better finish this project.
You need to finish lab 7 first before working on project 3. You'd better finish the problems in lab 8 as well, which could help you be more familiar with Scala and the Spark transformation and action operations.
In the first problem of Project 3, when the result key/values pairs have the same value, rank them according to the alphabetical order of the keys. I've updated the project specification file.
The marks of Project 1 have been released, together with the data sets used in marking. If you have any questions please contact me, and I will ask the tutor to check your submission again.
The Monday after the break week is a public holiday, and there is no lecture that day. We will need to have a lecture in week 13 in order to finish the teaching of all chapters.
