Hadoop: A One-Day, Hands-On Crash Course
THE ATTENDANCE CAP FOR THIS TUTORIAL HAS BEEN MET. PREREGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
This full-day tutorial is a fast-paced, vendor-agnostic technical overview of the Hadoop landscape, and is targeted at both technical and non-technical people who want to understand the emerging world of Big Data, with a specific focus on Hadoop. You will be introduced to the core concepts of Hadoop, and dive deep into the critical paths of HDFS, Map/Reduce and HBase. You will also learn the basics of how to effectively write Pig and Hive scripts, and how to choose the correct use cases for Hadoop. During the tutorial, you will have access to an individual one-node Hadoop cluster in Rackspace to run through some hands-on labs for the five software components: HDFS, Map/Reduce, Pig, Hive and HBase.
In each sub-topic, you will be provided links and resource recommendations for further exploration. You will also be given a 100-page PDF slide deck, which can be used as reference material after the course. PDFs will also be given out for the five short, hands-on labs. No prior knowledge of databases or programming is assumed.
Note: You are required to bring a laptop. If you run into an issue during the hands-on portions, it is also not guaranteed the instructor will be available to help you troubleshoot.
