This year I’m delivering in DevGeekWeek (Israel) an introductory seminar on Hadoop technology. During the seminar we will learn about the main components of the Hadop, understand what kind of challenges this technology aims to solve, discuss the various Hadoop distributions (Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR) and learn how to use projects such as Pig, Hive, Sqoop, Flume and Spark. More details can be found at the following link.
