The Greater Hartford ACM Chapter is proud to announce a workshop on Friday, March 27th at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Apache Hadoop by Sang Shin. You do not have to be an ACM member to attend.
Big Data Analytics is becoming an important business tool for business organizations in pretty much every domain. It helps these organizations make better business decisions by enabling data analysists to analyze huge volumes of unstructured data that may be left untapped by conventional business intelligence or database technologies. Apache Hadoop is an open source project that enables the big data analytics through distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of commodity servers. It is designed to scale up from a single server to thousands of machines. When Hadoop was first released in 2011, comprising mainly HDFS and MapReduce, it soon became clear that Hadoop was not simply another application or service, but a platform around which an entire ecosystem of capabilities could be built. Since then, dozens of self-standing software projects have sprung into being around Hadoop, each addressing a variety of problem spaces and meeting different needs. This workshop will start with basic motivation and architecture of Hadoop and then cover these technologies – HDFS, MapReduce, PIG, Hive, HBase, Sqoop, Oozie, and Flume – to the extent time permits. (It is highly likely we will be able to cover only a subset of these topics given the time constraint.)
