Today I did a web search for “pig training” using my favorite search engine. I was wildly entertained by the results, and have embedded my favorite for your viewing pleasure.
However, when I stopped laughing, I realized that this probably isn’t what most people reading this blog would have hoped to find. To that end, I am happy to announce that Cloudera’s Online Apache Hadoop Training now includes two sessions on Apache Pig.
A few weeks back, our friend Alan Gates from Y! came to the Cloudera offices and delivered a great lecture on Pig and worked with us to produce a screencast for the exercises. We hope this makes it easier for the community to understand what types of processing Pig enables and make informed decisions about the various tools and higher level languages in the Hadoop ecosystem.
