Without an extensive background in programming, there was an initial barrier to entry in understanding the syntax used for the Spark Core. Once I had a general understanding of the format for simple programs, it was easy to combine basic concepts into slightly more complex. Still, certain concepts that I thought would be easy, like outputting a string to the cloud variable rather than a numerical value, proved to be more difficult than initially anticipated, which exemplifies the underlying complexity of C++. Overall, I was satisfied with the successes I had with my project over the 1-week timeframe.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
