What will I learn during the workshop?

At the end of the workshop you will know:

  • How to connect to the Hadoop 3 platform
  • How to transfer data efficiently
  • What tools that are available
  • How to launch these tools

What will NOT be taught during the workshop?

Given that this is an introductory workshop and the wide variety of tools available, this workshop will not explain how to use each of the tools, but it will simply show how to access them, their main features and how they are launched.

Subsequently, specific workshops will be held that will focus on specific tools such as Spark, where its use will be taught in detail.
