Are you ready to get some Hadoop knowledge dropped on you?
Well here it is after eight long months since my last Pluralsight course.
HDFS Getting Started has been launched. I couldn’t be more excited to have this course released.
HDFS Getting Started is baseline course for anyone working with Hadoop. Starting development with Hadoop is easy when testing in your local sandbox but what happens when it’s time to go from testing to production?
Hadoop management and orchestration is hard. Most task are accomplished from the command line. Even something as simple as moving data from your local machine into HDFS can seem complicated.
What’s HDFS Getting Started about?
My new Pluralsight course, HDFS Getting Started, walks through real life examples of moving data around in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). Learning to use the hdfs dfs commands will ensure you have the baseline Hadoop skills needed to excel in the Hadoop ecosystem.
Structured data is all around us in the form of relational databases. In this course we will ingest data from MySQL database into HDFS using Sqoop. Walk through a quick tutorial of writing a Sqoop script to move structured stock market data in MySQL into HDFS.
Pig and Hive are great ways to structure data in HDFS for analysis, but moving that data around in HDFS can get tricky. In this course we walk through using both applications to analyze stock market data. All from the Hive and Pig command lines.
Hbase is another hot application in the Hadoop ecosystem. Do you know how to move data from HDFS into HBase? In HDFS Getting Started learn to take our stock market data index it and move it into HBase by writting a Pig script.
How is the Course Broken down?
HDFS Getting started is broken down into six modules. The modules cover different applications and how they use HDFS to query/ingest/manipulate/move data in Hadoop.
HDFS Getting Started Modules
- Understanding HDFS
- Creating, Manipulating and Retrieving HDFS Files
- Transferring Relational Data to HDFS using Sqoop
- Querying Data with Hive and Pig
- Processing Sparse Data with HBase
- Automating Basic HDFS Operations
