Event Details

Course -Apache Hadoop 2.0 : Data Analysis with the Hortonworks Data Platform using Pig and Hive


This 4-day hands-on training course teaches you how to develop applications and analyze Big Data stored in Apache Hadoop 2.0 using Pig and Hive. You 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.

Other topics covered include data ingestion using Sqoop and Flume, and defining workflow using Oozie.

Note: this course was formerly named: Developing Apache Hadoop 2.0 Solutions for Data Analysts
