Python is preferred for machine learning. In Spark, Spark ML can be done in Python, Scala and Java. Is it fine to do that in Scala instead of Python?Thanks.

If you are comfortable with Scala, why not? Pillars of Machine learning are mathematics, models and algorithms, not the language you use to work with frameworks like spark.
