Course Overview

NYC Data Science Academy is pleased to offer our introductory Hadoop class: a 5 week intensive weekend course that will bring your basic understanding of Hadoop to a professional level. Hadoop Data Analytic Platform aims to provide a firm foundation for the start of a professional career using Hadoop.
Potential students should be familiar with Java and basic Linux commands.

What is Hadoop?

Hadoop is an open source, database framework that allows for the processing of large data sets using parallel computing methods. Utilizing Google’s MapReduce and the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), Hadoop allows for scalability, flexibility and fault tolerance. Hadoop is optimized to handle massive quantities of data either structured, semi-structured, or unstructured– meaning Hadoop is perfect for Big Data.
As part of the Apache Framework, there are a litany of Apache compliments such as Hive, Pig and Zookeeper, that further extend Hadoop’s applications and usability.

Project Demo Day and Certificates

From building your first cluster to enterprise level application of Hadoop clusters, the course
ends with a demonstration of a project of your choice on Project Demo Day.
On Demo Day you will showcase a project of your choosing, utilizing the tools and skillsets
taught to you throughout this course. We encourage you to be creative!
After the successful completion of the course, you will qualify for one of three certificates:
Extraordinary Standing, Honorable Graduation, and Active Participation.
Certificates are awarded according to your understanding, skill, and participation.
