This training course is designed for developers who need to create applications to analyze Big Data stored in Apache Hadoop using Apache Pig and Apache Hive, and developing applications on Apache Spark.

Topics include: Essential understanding of HDP and its capabilities, Hadoop, YARN, HDFS, MapReduce/Tez, data ingestion, using Pig and Hive to perform data analytics on Big Data and an introduction to Spark Core, Spark SQL, Apache Zeppelin, and additional Spark features.

Students should be familiar with programming principles and have experience in software development. SQL and light scripting knowledge is also helpful. No prior Hadoop knowledge is required.

Developers and data engineers who need to understand and develop applications on HDP.
