When you pick a book, make sure it covers the version of Spark you want to deploy. There are
a lot of books out there that focus a lot on Spark 1.x. Spark 2.x generalizes the dataframe
API, introduces Tungsten, etc. All might not be relevant to a pure “sys admin” learning,
but it is good to know.

spark, how spark works internally, best ways to install/deploy/monitor and how to get best
performance possible.
