Description

Apache Hadoop is one of the most popular and useful technology in Data Science and Data engineering world. Big companies like Amazon, Netflix, Google etc use Apache Hadoop. This course is designed to help you achieve your goals in Data Science field. Data Engineer and Software Engineers with Apache Hadoop knowledge may get more salary than others with similar qualifications without Apache Hadoop knowledge.

In this course, you will learn how to handle interview questions on Apache Hadoop in Software Development. I will explain you the important concepts of Apache Hadoop.

You will also learn the benefits and use cases of Apache Hadoop in this course. 

What is the biggest benefit of this course to me?

Finally, the biggest benefit of this course is that you will be able to demand higher salary in your next job interview.

It is good to learn Apache Hadoop for theoretical benefits. But if you do not know how to handle interview questions on Apache Hadoop, you can not convert your Apache Hadoop knowledge into higher salary.

What are the topics covered in this course?

We cover a wide range of topics in this course. We have questions on Apache Hadoop, Hadoop architecture, Hadoop deep concepts, Hadoop tricky questions etc.

How will this course help me?

By attending this course, you do not have to spend time searching the Internet for Apache Hadoop interview questions. We have already compiled the list of most popular and latest Apache Hadoop Interview questions. 

Are there answers in this course?

Yes, in this course each question is followed by an answer. So you can save time in interview preparation.

What is the best way of viewing this course?

You have to just watch the course from beginning to end. Once you go through all the videos, try to answer the questions in your own words.
