Cloudera Essentials for Apache Hadoop

Applying the Fundamentals of Big Data and Hadoop

Cloudera University's one-day essentials course presents an overview of Apache Hadoop and how it can help decision-makers meet business goals, providing a fundamental introduction to the main components of Hadoop and its use cases in various industries. This course is a good starting point for any role or set of objectives and is part of the data analyst learning path and is also available as a free online video series.


 I came away from the class with a far more solid understanding of the inner workings of MapReduce. Questions, no matter how detailed, were encouraged and answered precisely by Cloudera's well-prepared instructor.
