Processing Big Data with Hadoop in Azure HDInsight

Microsoft via edX

This course may be unavailable.


More and more organizations are taking on the challenge of analyzing big data. This course teaches you how to use the Hadoop technologies in Microsoft Azure HDInsight to build batch processing solutions that cleanse and reshape data for analysis. In this five-week course, you’ll learn how to use technologies like Hive, Pig, Oozie, and Sqoop with Hadoop in HDInsight; and how to work with HDInsight clusters from Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX client computers.

NOTE: To complete the hands-on elements in this course, you will require an Azure subscription and a Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X client computer. You can sign up for a free Azure trial subscription (a valid credit card is required for verification, but you will not be charged for Azure services). Note that the free trial is not available in all regions. It is possible to complete the course and earn a certificate without completing the hands-on practices.

  • Good introductory course. You will learn basics things that you can do using Azure and HDInsight. If you are not familiar with clouding computing it is a good course to take.
    But it really lack of good practical assignments. All the labs it has are not graded and basically are just repetition of what was shown in videos. Quizzes are pretty easy.
