Hadoop and its Ecosystem Components in Action
It’s one thing to have a high-level understanding of Big Data, Hadoop and MapReduce; it’s quite another to feel comfortable working with the tools. In this demo-heavy session with VSLive Co-Chair and ZDNet Big Data blogger Andrew Brust, we’ll take a look at actual MapReduce code and see Hadoop ecosystem components HBase, Hive, Pig and Mahout in action.
