Course - Developing Apache Hadoop 2.0 Solutions for Data Analysts


This 4-day hands-on training course teaches students how to develop applications and analyze Big Data stored in Apache Hadoop 2.0 using Pig and Hive. Students will learn the details of Hadoop 2.0, YARN, the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), an overview of MapReduce, and a deep dive into using Pig and Hive to perform data analytics on Big Data, including finding trends and detecting patterns.

This is a Hortonworks University class delivered by Big Data Partnership, a certified training partner.


4 days
