I decided it is finally time to jump in and start looking at Hadoop. I’d originally scheduled for Windows version of the class, but it was cancelled so I switched to the Apache version. At this point, I really wish I’d kept up with Linux commands…
Some of the topics we have discussed so far:
- Overall Hadoop architecture
- Briefly discussed Pig, but will get into that more tomorrow
I’m taking the Hortonworks official training since they are a Microsoft partner. One thing that is a little odd is that I am the only one in my classroom. Everyone else (about 15) are in different cities/offices. I really set up with combination of cameras and WebEx. It seems to work well, at least so far. The learning facilitator is top notch as well. Definitely not his first time teaching the course.
Lots to learn with Hadoop and I am hoping this course will help me get up and running.
