Audience & Prerequisites

This course is best suited to anyone who wants to work directly with big data (developers, administrators, architects, data analysts) or who needs to understand Hadoop and MapReduce (CTOs, CIOs, technical managers). A basic level of technical proficiency is valuable, and Udacity offers precursor courses on Computer Science that may be helpful. Prior knowledge of Apache Hadoop is not required, although the Cloudera Essentials for Apache Hadoop video series is a useful companion course.
