Exclusive training. Will take a maximum of only 20 candidates per session. Register before its sold out.

1 day hands-on intense training on mastering Hadoop map-reduce for data analysis. The session covers the following:

  • Introduction to the Hadoop map-reduce framework
  • Essentials of data import into HDFS and data export from HDFS
  • Map-reduce algorithm planning
  • Transforming common algorithms to the map-reduce model
  • Using Pig to run Hadoop map-reduce jobs
  • Leveraging Hive for SQL style manipulation that run map-reduce jobs under the hood
  • Getting started with Cascading as an abstraction for map-reduce
  • First steps with Mahout: Machine learning the Hadoop way
  • Hadoop map-reduce configuration options
  • Optimizing Hadoop map-reduce jobs

Plenty of examples. Lots of practical advice.

Lunch will be served. Also, some free beer after a long day of learning!

What are others saying about Shashank Tiwari's sessions:

Went to the last of 4 NoSQL database talks at SV Cloud Computing Meetup. It was on consistent hashing databases. Shashank Tiwari's talk once again hit the right balance of theory and practical information.


As quoted in Business Week's "The Cloud: Battle of the Tech Titans"

Sebastian Stadil, the 26-year-old founder of the club, declares the meeting in session and cedes the floor to the guest speaker, Shashank Tiwari, a local cloud developer. The topic of tonight's three-hour presentation: working with the "sloppy quorums," "gossip-based membership protocol," and other fine points of a database technology invented at Facebook called Cassandra.
