In this tutorial you’ll learn how to use Apache Drill, the open source, distributed schema-free, SQL engine. At the end of this tutorial, you’ll be able to explore and analyze your data in place with standard SQL queries or BI tools, whether the data is sitting in files on your laptop, or in HDFS, HBase, MongoDB, or even a relational database.
Note that this is a hands-on tutorial, so bring your laptop and you’ll be able to run all the examples (as well as some of your own queries) throughout the tutorial.
