Databricks Data Science & Engineering guide

Databricks Data Science & Engineering is the classic Databricks environment for collaboration among data scientists, data engineers, and data analysts. It also forms the backbone of the Databricks Machine Learning environment.

Note

If you are a data analyst who works primarily with SQL queries and BI tools, you may prefer the Databricks SQL persona-based environment.

The Databricks Data Science & Engineering guide provides how-to guidance to help you get the most out of the Databricks collaborative analytics platform. For getting started tutorials and introductory information, see Get started with Databricks and Introduction to Databricks.
