Presenters: Christophe Bisciglia, Aaron Kimball, and Tom White

There's more to Hadoop than just getting your cluster running. In this session, we will look closely at data processing pipelines, and teach participants how to leverage Hadoop and related tools to conduct complex data analysis tasks.

We will assume a functioning Hadoop cluster and properly configured supporting tools such as Hive, Pig, Streaming, etc. We will go over, in depth, at least one data processing pipeline. This will include data collection, formatting, processing and presentation. Participants will see examples of code, and the glue necessary to start with the data you have, and end with the results you want. Cloudera will provide this cluster free of charge to training participants for the duration of the conference, and provide support for user issues.

Expertise Level: Intermediate

This session is intended for intermediate Hadoop users. Users need to have used Hadoop and be familiar with the basics. Users should be comfortable with Java programming and scripting in their language of choice. We will not cover basics or cluster configuration, but will focus on enabling people with the need to process large amounts of data to leverage Hadoop and related tools such as Hive, Pig, and Streaming. Target users may have large volumes of log files or user data that they would like to explore.
