NoSQL Now 2013 Tutorial: Introduction to Hadoop Ecosystem

NoSQL Now!
NoSQL Now! conference emerged to be one of the most exciting gatherings for NoSQL practitioners and those who are looking to apply NoSQL in production. This conference is particularly interesting as it is a largest vendor neutral forum focused on NoSQL. There is a great variety of alternative NoSQL approaches and learning about them is the key to successful adoption.

At my company, SciSpike, one of our typical engagements is introducing new technologies. NoSQL and BigData are among the most popular topics lately and we have been educating and advising our clients since the early days of NoSQL.

This year at NoSQL Now! 2013, I am teaching a tutorial Introduction to Hadoop Ecosystem. This is a great starting point to those who are newcomers to Hadoop. In this fast paced tutorial we will provide a rapid immersion into Big Data with the Hadoop ecosystem. We start with an introduction to Big Data and the MapReduce algorithm. We continue with the Hadoop framework and show the ways to interact with the Hadoop file system and the cluster. We then introduce Hive and Pig as the higher level interfaces to process data and HBase, as the distributed, columnar database. At the end, we explore some exciting new projects in the Hadoop ecosystem. You will leave with a good understanding of what Hadoop is and how to start using it in your projects.

Join us for NoSQL Now! 2013, August 20-22 in San Jose. Check out the Introduction to Hadoop Ecosystem tutorial and join us for many exciting presentations and discussions.
