This is a 6-week evening program providing a hands-on introduction to the Hadoop & Spark ecosystem of Big Data technologies. The course will cover these key components of Apache Hadoop: HDFS, MapReduce with streaming, Hive, & Spark. Programming will be done in Python. The course will begin with a review of Python concepts needed for our examples. The course format is interactive. Students will need to bring laptops to class. We will do our work on AWS (Amazon Web Services); instructions will be provided ahead of time on how to connect to AWS & obtain an account.

Hadoop is a set of open-source programs running in computer clusters that simplify the handling of large amounts of data. Originally, Hadoop consisted of a distributed file system tuned for large data sets & an implementation of the MapReduce parallelism paradigm, but has expanded in many ways. It now includes database systems, languages for parallelism, libraries for machine learning, its own job scheduler, & much more. Furthermore, MapReduce is no longer the only parallelism framework; Spark is an increasingly popular alternative. In summary, Hadoop is a very popular & rapidly growing set of cluster computing solutions, which is becoming an essential tool for data scientists.
