Take your knowledge to the next level and solve real-world problems with training for Hadoop and the enterprise data hub

Cloudera University’s three-day course for designing and building big data applications prepares you to analyze and solve real-world problems using Apache Hadoop and associated tools in the enterprise data hub (EDH).

You will work through the entire process of designing and building solutions, including ingesting data, determining the appropriate file format for storage, processing the stored data, and presenting the results to the end-user in an easy-to-digest form. Go beyond MapReduce to use additional elements of the EDH and develop converged applications that are highly relevant to the business.

Hands-on Hadoop
Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will navigate the Hadoop ecosystem, learning topics such as:

  • Creating a data set with Kite SDK
  • Writing user-defined functions for Hive and Impala
  • Transforming data with Morphlines
  • Indexing data with Cloudera Search
  • Building a Search UI with Hue

Audience and prerequisites

This course is best suited to developers, engineers, and architects who want to use Hadoop and related tools to solve real-world problems. Participants should have already attended Cloudera Developer Training for Apache Hadoop or have equivalent practical experience.

Good knowledge of Java and basic familiarity with Linux are required. Experience with SQL is helpful.

Developer certification

Upon completion of the course, attendees are encouraged to continue their study and register for a Cloudera certification exam. Certification is a great differentiator; it helps establish you as a leader in the field, providing employers and customers with tangible evidence of your skills and expertise.

Hi Christine, please have a look at the “Computer Requirements”
section in the site below 1

Mainly, ensure your laptop resources fit the requirements
(8GB of RAM) and that you have VMWare software installed.

We will supply USB sticks with the Virtual Machine,
and will allocate some time on the first day to install the VM.

Thanks, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Strata!

Is there anything specific we should download or have available for this course the first day?
