Description

Do you want to learn how to build data flows using Apache NiFi (Hortonworks DataFlow) to solve all your streaming challenges?

If you have answered YES, then you are at the right place…!!!

In today's big data world, fast data is becoming increasingly important. Streaming data at scale and rapidly between all your systems should be centralised, automated and resilient to failure to ensure good delivery to your downstream systems. Learn how to build data flows using Apache NiFi (Hortonworks DataFlow) to solve all your streaming challenges!

You will become proficient at creating efficient streaming data flows by taking this course which is aimed for beginners! No programming knowledge is required to take this course!

Apache NiFi initially used by the NSA so they could move data at scale and was then open sourced. Being such a hot technology, Onyara (the company behind it) was then acquired by Hortonworks, one of the main backers of the big data project Hadoop and then Hadoop Data Platform.

Apache NiFi is now used in many top organisations that want to harness the power of their fast data by sourcing and transferring information from and to their database and big data lakes. It is a key tool to learn for the analyst and data scientists alike. Its simplicity and drag and drop interface make it a breeze to use! You can start building flows between Kafka and ElasticSearch, an FTP and MongoDB, and so much more! Your imagination is the limit

Quick Overview Of Course Content -

This course will take you through the Apache NiFi technology. You will help you understand its fundamental concepts, with theory lessons that walk you through the core concepts of the Apache NiFi.

You will also have hands-on labs to get started and build your first data flows. You will learn how to set up your connectors, processors, and how to read your FlowFiles to make most of what NiFi offer. The most important configuration options will be demonstrated so you will be able to get started in no time.

We will also analyse a template picked from the web and understand how to debug your flows as well as route your data to different processors based on outcomes through relationships.

We will finally learn about the integrations between NiFi and Apache Kafka or MongoDB. Lots of learning ahead!
