Overview

Take Your Knowledge to the Next Level with Cloudera’s Data Science Training and Certification Data scientists build information platforms to provide deep insight and answer previously unimaginable questions. Spark and Hadoop are transforming how data scientists work by allowing interactive and iterative data analysis at scale. Learn how Spark and Hadoop enable data scientists to help companies reduce costs, increase profits, improve products, retain customers, and identify new opportunities. Cloudera University’s three-day course helps participants understand what data scientists do, the problems they solve, and the tools and techniques they use. Through in-class simulations, participants apply data science methods to real-world challenges in different industries and, ultimately, prepare for data scientist roles in the field

Hands-On Hadoop

Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will navigate the Hadoop ecosystem, learning topics such as:

  • How to identify potential business use cases where data science can provide impactful results
  • How to obtain, clean and combine disparate data sources to create a coherent picture for analysis
  • What statistical methods to leverage for data exploration that will provide critical insight into your data
  • Where and when to leverage Hadoop streaming and Apache Spark for data science pipelines
  • What machine learning technique to use for a particular data science project
  • How to implement and manage recommenders using Spark’s MLlib, and how to set up and evaluate data experiments
  • What are the pitfalls of deploying new analytics projects to production, at scale

Audience & Prerequisites

This course is best suited to developers, data analysts, and statisticians with basic knowledge of Apache Hadoop: HDFS, MapReduce, Hadoop Streaming, and Apache Hive. Students should have proficiency in a scripting language; Python is strongly preferred, but familiarity with Perl or Ruby is sufficient.

The Cloudera instructor was excellent, offering clear and concise instruction that was easy to understand. His wide-ranging peripheral knowledge helped apply the course material to real-world situations. I look forward to attending another class!
