Tutorials Related to All HDP Certified Developer Exam Objectives

New Contributor

I am preparing for the HDP Developer Certification and have been unable to find relevant tutorials related to each of the exam objectives. I'm using the labs that are part of the Hortonworks University as well as the official tutorials. I'm aware that the exam objectives list has links to documentation but I'm specifically looking for more hands-on step-by-step tutorials for things such as 'Use WebHDFS to create and write a file in HDFS'.

Hi Daniel,

There are no WebHDFS questions on the exam. The exam objectives are listed here:

http://hortonworks.com/training/class/hdp-certified-developer-hdpcd-exam/

Have you tried the practice exam? It contains tasks similar to the real exam, and more importantly you get to see what the exam environment is like:

Hi there!

Tutorial updates and improvements are in the works. You can try the tutorial here: https://github.com/ZacBlanco/hwx-tutorials/blob/securing-hadoop-with-knox-import/2-3/tutorials/secur...

If you want to interact directly with WebHDFS you can circumvent Knox by using the WebHDFS URL instead (I believe it should be something like http://localhost:50070/webhdfs/v1/

This tutorial uses Apache Knox and WebHDFS to write some files to a directory. It utilizes `curl` on the command line to do most of the work. Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions on this one.

If you're looking for more tutorial related to specific topics please let me know and I can do my best to point you in the right direction

Just FYI: WebHDFS is not a part of the HDPCD exam.

The two best resources to prepare for the exam are:

1. Going through the list of exam objectives and making sure you know how to perform each task: http://hortonworks.com/training/class/hdp-certified-developer-hdpcd-exam/

2. Working through the practice exam

Thanks Rich. Your response led me to find a discrepancy between what is written on the first link you provided and the pdf file which is available for download on the right side of that same page under Resources as '

HDP Certified Developer (HDPCD) Exam' which is what Ive been referencing during my preparation.
