Big Data Expert Training

You know Apache Hadoop and other Big Data technology but you don’t feel skilled enough to start right away? Then this hands-on expert workshop is your choice!

BIG DATA FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS

Thursday 22/10/2015
Experts:
Roman Kern, Christopher Horn, Gunnar Schulze
Target group: Experienced software developers interested in Big Data technologies.
Prerequisites: Java (Eclipse, IntelliJ)

Supported by our experts, you will get to know about the Apache Hadoop ecosystem and you will learn how to develop big data solutions by yourself. We start with an overview about big data processing frameworks; including MapReduce, Apache Spark and NoSQL databases (HBase, Hive) as the first-choice technologies. The practical part will focus on a real-world example. Sensory data from building/home automation will be correlated with external data sources e.g. weather forecast. First, the classical non-big-data approach will be outlined. Next, the same task will be solved using big data technologies e.g. Hadoop MapReduce, Apache Spark and Hive. You will learn how to easily scale up computation to thousands of CPUs. Later on you will have the chance to interactively apply the technologies in a realistic use-case which is computed on our big data cluster. Our experts will guide you through the session and answer your questions along the way.

A pre-installed and fully configured software stack will be offered as a VirtualBox image, which you can run on your own device. Participants will not only get a good overview about current big data frameworks but will also create own skills on how to apply those frameworks to daily business problems. The workshop targets are experienced software developers (e.g. Java, Linux) who are willing to extend their knowledge in terms of Big Data technologies.

Even non-software-developers with a technical background may participate.
