Event Details

Course Description

DatumFora (an ExpoNential Inc.'s company) is offering this extensive weekend class on Hadoop platforms. This is a fast paced, vendor agnostic, technical overview of the Hadoop landscape. No prior knowledge of databases or programming is assumed. This survey course is targeted towards both technical and non-technical people who want to understand the emerging world of Big Data, with a specific focus on Hadoop. 

Students will experience real Hadoop clusters and the latest Hadoop distributions. We will discuss vendor offerings for Hadoop including Cloudera, Hortonworks, and MapR. The lab work will be conducted on Cloudera based deployments to facilitate hands-on experience.
