Cloudera is offering several training courses for Apache Hadoop over the dates surrounding Hadoop Summit. There are five different courses in all spanning the dates of June 27th to July 1st. Three of these courses are specifically designed to provide the necessary knowledge for a robust overall understanding of Hadoop and they tackle the “elephant” from several perspectives — developer, system administrator, and managerial. The other two training sessions focus on projects within the Hadoop ecosystem; namely Hive, Pig, and HBase.
Cloudera Developer Bootcamp for Apache Hadoop is a two-day course designed for developers who wish to learn the MapReduce framework and how to write programs against its API. The course covers similar material to our standard three-day Developer training, but has been condensed into two intensive days with extended course hours. At the end of the course, attendees have the opportunity to take an exam which, if passed, confers the Cloudera Certified Hadoop Developer credential.
As interest in Hadoop continues to grow, we continue to make available public training sessions to accommodate. Cloudera training sessions are always evolving to stay current with Hadoop technology as the open source community continues to fine tune and improve Hadoop and its surrounding ecosystem.
Cloudera provides training sessions tailored toward Developers, Administrators and Managers for Hadoop, HBase, Hive, Pig and Hue. The Hadoop Developer and Sysadmin training course includes the certification exam to become a Cloudera Certified Hadoop Developer.
This is a guest post from an attendee of our Hadoop Developer Training course, Attila Csordas, bioinformatician at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK.
As a wet lab biologist turned bioinformatician I have ~2 year programming experience, mainly in Perl and have been working with Java for the last 9 months. A bioinformatician is not a developer so I’m writing easy code in just a fraction of my work time: parsers, db connections, xml validators, little bug fixes, shell scripts. On the other hand, I have now 5 months of Hadoop experience – and a 6 month old baby named Alice – and that experience is as immense as it gets. Ever since I read the classic Dean-Ghemawat paper, MapReduce: Simplified Data Processing on Large Clusters, I’m thinking about bioinformatics problems in terms of Map and Reduce functions (especially during my evening jog), then implementing these ideas in my free time–which consists of feeding the baby, writing code, changing the nappy, rewriting code.
Hadoop Essentials for Managers is a one-day course provided October 11th—the day prior to Hadoop World—that will provide decision-makers with the information they need about Apache Hadoop. In this session we will answer questions such as:
That’s right, sign up for any of the training courses surrounding Hadoop World 2010, and receive a complimentary pass to the conference! There are seven different courses on offer, so whether you are new to Hadoop or looking to deepen your skills, you’ll find something to fit your needs.
If you are a manager trying to decide whether Hadoop is an appropriate technology for your organization, Hadoop Essentials for Managers will answer your questions. We will show you when using Hadoop is appropriate, what Hadoop is being used for in a range of industries, how Hadoop fits into your existing environment and what you need to know in order to deploy it within your organization.
Cloudera’s Apache Hadoop Training and Certification for System Administrators has made it across the Atlantic to London for the first time! This two-day course covers planning, deploying, maintaining, monitoring, and troubleshooting your Hadoop cluster. We’ll talk about HDFS, MapReduce, Apache Hive, Apache Pig, Apache HBase, Flume and more, from the System Administrator’s point of view. Take the certification exam at the end of your training and go home with a valuable validation of your Hadoop knowledge.

Our vision for Hadoop World is a conference where both newcomers and experienced Hadoop users can learn and be part of the growing Hadoop community.
We are also offering training sessions for newcomers and experienced Hadoop users alike. Whether you are looking for an Introduction to Hadoop, Hadoop Certification, or you want to learn more about related Hadoop projects we have the training you are looking for.
Around the globe, more and more companies are turning to Hadoop to tackle data processing problems that don’t lend themselves well to traditional systems. Users in the community consistently ask us to offer training in more places and expand our course offerings, and those who have obtained certification have reported great success connecting with companies investing in Hadoop. All of this keeps us pretty excited about the long term prospects for Hadoop.
We recently announced our first international developer training sessions in Tokyo (sold out, waitlist available) and Taiwan, and we’re happy to follow up with sessions in the EU. We’ll be visiting London the first week of June, and Berlin the next. If you’ll be in Berlin that week, be sure to check out the Berlin Buzzwords conference – a two day event focused on Hadoop, Lucene, and NoSQL.
We love getting together with other Hadoop fans and fanatics! We’ve put together new training offerings for this years upcoming Hadoop Summit in June, and we’ve worked out a special deal with Yahoo! to waive the conference registration fee for anyone who attends a Cloudera training session at the 2010 Hadoop Summit (you’ll get a discount code for training in your conference registration confirmation). In addition to our developer certification course, we’ll offer an extended version of our Systems Administration course, as well as new, full-day course on HBase. One particularly exciting new offering is our full-day course on Hive, which opens Hadoop up to anyone who knows SQL.
All of these offerings are driven by direct customer feedback about what their organizations need to be even more successful with Hadoop, and we’re excited to help. We look forward to seeing you there.
It’s been over a year now since we started offering Hadoop training in the Bay Area, and since then, we’ve put many of our introductory materials online (for free), and offer in-person public classes in cities around the US (click here for a full list of sessions). The response has been incredible, but one thing is painfully obvious: we’re not doing enough to meet the needs of the growing world-wide Apache Hadoop community.
To that end, we’ve made investments in translating translating our materials into new languages and thinking about how to scale our training programs internationally.
