Hadoop_elephantsWith the Hadoop Summit conference coming next week (June 3-5), it might be useful for all newbies to get up to speed with this exciting distributed computing technology. Below is a video presentation that will open doors for you about the Hadoop technology that’s taking the enterprise by storm.

The talk was recorded at SpringOne2GX 2013 in Santa Clara, CA. The speaker is Adam Shook of Pivotal Software. The session assumes absolutely no knowledge of Apache Hadoop and will provide a complete introduction to all the major aspects of the Hadoop ecosystem of projects and tools. If you are looking to get up to speed on Hadoop, trying to work out what all the Big Data fuss is about, or just interested in brushing up your understanding of MapReduce, then this is the session for you. Adam covers all the basics with detailed discussion about HDFS, MapReduce, YARN (MRv2), and a broad overview of the Hadoop ecosystem including Hive, Pig, HBase, ZooKeeper and more.
