"Completed my CCDH certification!!!"

"I have just completed the CCDH certification last week. And i must say that this course helped me a great deal to master the Hadoop concepts and gain confidence in taking up this challenging exam.

The course is designed well and the Hadoop concepts explained in a very clear style which also made my learning fun. I would recommended this course for anyone wanting to take up the CCDH." -Glen


"Must have Course!!!"

"Innovative way of teaching. I found this to be a lot of value packed into one single course! Instructor has really given his best to make you understand the topics. I would recommend this to everyone." - Abhijeet Garde


"Good course on hadoop for beginners!"

"This is probably one of the best bang for the buck hadoop courses Ive taken and seen. Ive taken a few other quick free courses to get Hadoop and MapReduce from a different perspective and I always refer back to this course." -Brian Teusink


Objective of this Course

You may start with no knowledge in Hadoop and this training will help you setup hadoop and learn hadoop and mapReduce programming to a level you can get ready to face certification exam from Cloudera: Cloudera Certified Hadoop Developer (CCD-410.)

Learning hadoop is simple:

Learning Hadoop is easy, all you need is a little help in the right direction. You can learn it at home by setting by a cluster on single machine and try your hands on advanced concepts at home and this course helps you do just that. In this course you will learn the fundamentals of hadoop with examples and pictorial explanations which are fast and easy to understand. With exam like practice quizzes, you will get ready to clear Cloudera and Hortonworks developer certification examination.

There are courses from a lot of companies which cost a fortune($2000 and upwards) for just 3 to 4 day training. This course is aimed to provide a less costly DIY pattern learning. One of the unique qualities of this course is that it helps you reach certification level expertise at fraction of the cost.

Why you should take this course?

Things keep changing, and when in IT, you should know that the rule of the game is to understand the new wave and ride it when its there. This course would take down all the initial struggle that you might need to do to learn a complex technology and you'll be able to learn easily through video and through interacting with me.

Calculate the Return On Investment (ROI) for this course. Knowledge, certification and higher pay-scales would remain with you forever, with just one time small investment. This could be one of your best investment to brighten carrier opportunities.

This could open your doors to the most in demand IT jobs in the current times. Right now is the perfect time to enter the field of Big Data and whatever target you choose, to be hadoop developer or hadoop administrator or hadoop data scientist, the content of the course is fundamental to every carrier path and very necessary to reach the ultimate goal.

What you will get from the course?

1. High quality video content: The video content is filled with animations and pictorial representations so as to make your learning interesting, innovative, fast and easy.

2. Code and Hands-on: All the students enrolled in this course install and run programs in map-reduce framework. Code of all the programs discussed is attached with the course. (10+ code examples).

3. Quizzes: There are exam-like, interesting quiz questions at the end of each lesson to check the learning and to get you ready for the certification exams.

4. Important Documents: A few important pdf document notes are attached with the lessons which help you to refer to when working on hadoop.


These general questions have been asked to me in the past.

Ques> By what time can I think of getting certified?

> It would take you around 15-25 days time to complete the course as it involves setting up hadoop and some hands on exercises. At the end of the course there are exam like quiz questions which would test your readiness to face and clear the exam. Because the exam pattern keeps changing, I would highly recommend to go through Cloudera practice papers to be in perfect preparation for the exam.

Ques> Do you give exam dumps?

> Nope. Sorry. This course would help you build understanding about Hadoop and thus prepare you for the exam. No dubious activities such as giving exam dumps are encouraged by this course.
