Not sure how leverage Big Data technology in your application? This hands-on tutorial will give you on an overview of how AWS can quickly and easily enable you to start generating insights from your company’s data. After a brief overview of the AWS Big Data toolset, we’ll focus on Amazon Elastic Map Reduce, showing how to easily create and customize dynamic Hadoop clusters. Participants will leverage the Amazon Elastic Map Reduce command line tools along with Amazon Public Datasets to generate insights in the domains of social media using public twitter follow graphs, life sciences using public PubChem datasets and log analysis using sample data. In the process participants will explore several different programming models including Hive, Pig and Hadoop Streaming.

No prior experience with Amazon Web Services, however the tutorials are aimed at developers. Familiarity with Linux and command line tools will be beneficial, as will a general understanding of Hadoop and map-reduce.
