I used Allison - http://www.alison.com/ and some others. But, you have to
pay for your certificate if you want it after the course.

Here are some other free sites before you take a paid training class. For
me I learn on my own then take a class which has worked for me for years.
Including Apache Hadoop (CDH).

Hello everybody,

 

My name is Kapil, I am a software developer, been working on projects involving Java/Scala/Databases for around 12 years across various industries. At present, I am working for a bank based in London.

 

My current project is based on collecting data from various sources and then merging information to make it usable by end users. I feel our project has got huge scope for big data technologies as we often deal with big data sets. I have got limited experience with big data technologies and so joined community to learn more and more. I am also preparing for Cloudera Apache Spark certification. I will be glad to talk to fellow members who are interested in this certification and sharing experiences.

 

Kind regards,

Kapil

Hi all. My name is Stevie, and I'm a DevOps Engineer who just inherited a CDH 5 cluster from a former employee, so I've been trying to ramp up. I took a 4-day course but as we all know, nothing beats real life experience. My background is in Linux and networking. In my current role I support an ad-serving platform with a mixture of open source tech like Kafka, Storm, Zookeeper, along with more standard fare like Tomcat, Aerospike, and Postgres. I hope to get feedback from folks who have experience with CDH as I work my way through the gotchas that are sure to come up (you know, like this past weekend when 18 datanodes suddenly stopped working). 

 

Looking forward to interacting with you all.

Hello All,

 

I have been in data management space for about two decades using traditional data management tools and analytics. Based in North Carolina state in USA.

I am new to Big Data, Hadoop, and exploring the hands on. 

My interests are Data Engineering and Data Analytics.

I was browsing this community/forum, and finding helpful suggestions and comments from fellow members and experts.

This community has been an open forum to post questions and follow-ups which will greatly help and enhance the understanding  of cloudera Hadoop aspects.

 

I would love to share my thoughts and comment if the posts are relevant to my area of expertise.

 

I am pretty sure that I will have great learing experience here.  Looking forward to it.

Hema,

Glad to have you. I am also in North Carolina (Charlotte) started learning
Apache Hadoop including Spark (also Flink - currently in incubation). Been
through a few paid programs and free online videos including Cloudera
examples on their website. If you need any assistance or recommendations of
online training let me know. I will do my best to assist with resources and
learning. I have paid for my voucher, CCA175, currently studying and hope
to be ready to take in 2 weeks (20 hours of studying I've been told).

Regards,
Anthony
