If you’re interested in playing around and exploring lakeFS, you can now easily get started using the Katacoda playground which provides a personalized sandboxed environment – all from your browser, without installing anything. 

What you will learn:

This tutorial we will work with a sample dataset to give you a sense of the ways lakeFS makes it easy to work with data.

We will also cover:

  • Basic lakectl command line usage
  • How to read, write, list and delete objects from lakeFS using the lakectl command
  • Read from, and write to lakeFS using its S3 API interface using Spark
  • Diff, commit and merge the changes created by Spark
  • Track commit history to understand changes to your data over time

The web based environment provides a full working lakeFS and Spark environment, so feel free to explore it on your own.

Start playing on Katacoda!
