Course - Developing Solutions for Apache Hadoop on Windows


This four-day course provides software developers and IT professionals the necessary training for creating enterprise solutions using Apache Hadoop on Windows. It consists of an effective mix of interactive lecture and extensive hand-on lab exercises.

Students will learn to develop applications and analyze big data stored in Apache Hadoop running on Microsoft Windows. Students will learn the details of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS ™) architecture and MapReduce framework, as well as learn how to develop applications on Hadoop® using tools like C#, Pig™, Hive™, HCatalog, Sqoop, Oozie and Microsoft Excel.

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