In this tutorial, we want to create a SparkSession with PySpark. In order to do this, we create a SparkSession object.

Import Libraries

First, we import the following python modules:

from pyspark.sql import SparkSession

Create SparkSession

Before we can work with Pyspark, we need to create a SparkSession. A SparkSession is the entry point into all functionalities of Spark.

In order to create a basic SparkSession programmatically, we use the following command:

spark = SparkSession \
    .builder \
    .appName("Python PySpark Example") \


Congratulations! Now you are one step closer to become an AI Expert. You have seen that it is very easy to create a SparkSession using PySpark. We can simply create a SparkSession object. Try it yourself!
