Course description

Join Hadoop expert Kevin McCarty as he takes a high level look at Hadoop beginning with its history. Next, McCarty examines a number of key components in the Hadoop ecosystem used for storage, processing, data ingest, and transformation. He will show how Hadoop addresses problems that plague large systems such as failover and redundant storage as well as explore how an organization might incorporate Hadoop into their existing IT framework.

Prerequisites

This course assumes that students have some programming background and some familiarity with a Unix-based operating system. No specific experience with Java programming language or Hadoop is required. As with any such course, the more experience you bring to the course, the more you’ll get out of it. This course moves quickly through a broad range of topics, but it does not require any prior experience with Hadoop. The course does assume that you are well familiarized with how to use the version of Windows that you are running. For example, the course might say simply “Open PuTTY” without explaining how to do that. You should also be able to navigate the folder hierarchy using Windows Explorer.
