Event Details

Note: We will be hosting this training session in partnership with Fox Interactive Media. This will be on the Fox lot, which has strict security protocols. As such, we need to close registrations earlier than usual to allow time to get your name on the entry list. Registration closes on July 28th at 1PM PDT.

Cloudera's Advanced Hadoop Training completes the three day training course and teaches advanced skills for debugging MapReduce programs and optimizing their performance. This session requires prior experience writing Hadoop programs, or attendence in the basic and intermediate training sessions.  Attendees will look deeper into the Hadoop API and learn about programmatic tools that facilitate tighter integration between Hadoop programs and other systems and higher parallel throughput.

Cloudera will give a series of lectures interleaved with practical, hands-on examples and exercises. Attendees must bring their own laptop with VMware Player (or Fusion for Mac) so they may follow along in a pre-configured virtual machine Cloudera provides.

At the end of the training session, those wishing to document their skills and receive the Cloudera Certified Hadoop Professional (CCHP) credential may take the certification exam. It covers material from all three sessoins.

During this all-day session, we will cover the following agenda with ample time for questions:


Debugging MapReduce programs

Debugging in the distributed environment is challenging. This lecture will expose you to best practices for program design to mitigate debugging challenges, as well as local testing tools and techniques for debugging at scale.


Advanced Hadoop API

In the basic training session, you learned how to get up and running writing Hadoop MapReduce programs in Java. This lecture probes deeper into the API, covering custom data types and file formats, direct HDFS access,  intermediate data partitioning, and other tools such as the DistributedCache.


Advanced Algorithms

This lecture introduces some graph algorithms that can be adapted for your needs, as well as more involved examples like PageRank. We'll also look at strategies for implementing joins efficiently, and compare different techniques that are appropriate to different data models.


Optimizing MapReduce Programs

We'll use the Cloudera Training VM to work through an example where you write a MapReduce program and improve its performance using techniques explored earlier.


Cloudera Certified Hadoop Professional Exam

The day will end with the CCHP exam for those wishing to document their Hadoop expertise. This test will assess your knowledge of all areas covered over the course of the three day training sessions.

We will take a one hour break around noon for lunch. There are many places to eat while exploring the Fox lot.
