Hadoop Fundamentals

Are you interested in moving beyond the elephant in the room and understanding Hadoop as a foundational tool set in your future? Then select this learning path to gain exposure to the tools used in Big Data, Hadoop's core components and supporting open source projects.

About this learning path

Hadoop is a name that represents two items, one a child’s toy and the other an open source framework for distributed storage and processing of big data. In both contexts, interaction with Hadoop is foundational in personal growth and development.  This learning path covers content that is critical to your success in this realm. It takes you on a journey that explains the Hadoop conceptual design, then it looks how to use the application and then manipulate data without the use of complex coding.

Come along and start your journey to receiving the following badges: Hadoop Foundations – Level 1, Hadoop Programming – Level 1, Hadoop Administration – Level 1, Hadoop Data Access – Level 1, and Hadoop Foundations – Level 2!
