    Comments about oreilly Study Guide for the Developer Certification for Apache Spark:

    The code was not available. I don't mean the data - that was downloadable. The only way to get code was to freezeframe the video and type it into an editor.

    Thats not acceptable.

    I called customer support and they just said download the file. Which does not have the code. They didnt know that.
