Speaker: Vivian Zhang, CTO and co-founder of SupStat Inc, organizer of NYC Open Data Meetup, Founder of NYC Data Science Academy( http://nycdatascience.com/ ) She teaches R and Hadoop.
Her data school hires the best working professionals to teach Python, D3.js and related Data Science skills. All the courses are designed to teach you employable skills. We teach the skills and toolkits in the class and assist students to do projects of their own choices. Students will show case their projects in this meetup group at the end of their courses.
In Hadoop workshop I and II, I will walk you through the steps to configure a Hadoop cluster on Amazon EC2 and run two simple map-reduce jobs on the cluster.
1. Sign up for Amazon AWS acct from http://aws.amazon.com/account/
2. get familiar with basic vi commands(if you don't know it, I can show you quickly. You are welcome to read more before coming.)
3. You don't need to know Java at this moment. If you know Java, you can program in Hadoop quickly in later workshops.
