Hi, The video posted on certification site does not mention any information related to avro files.

Let me rephrase the question.

Do we need to explicitly include avro packages when we launch pyspark (or spark-shell, in case of scala) using "--packages org.apache.spark:spark-avro_2. ... " option ?

Appreciate your response as we are unable to find an answer for this anywhere.

Thanks

Simple & valid question but no chance of a simple answer. Just copy and paste the FAQ. Great job Cloudera bots!
