The other day I saw a question on where to start to learn Big Data. Well, it dawned on me that I have created a few resources that might be useful and so I share them here. It feels good to have a few resources that can help people get started.
If you want to set up Hadoop clusters using Cloudera you could watch these online trainings:
(this one is FREE)
They get you started with a development cluster, then a production grade cluster, then a deployment in the AWS cloud and then on Azure, including a module on managed Big Data with Cloudera Altus
Once you have a cluster, you can watch this course to use HUE to work with Hive, Pig, Impala and more.
If you want to learn about search engines, you can check these on Solr
And regarding Spark, which IMHO is one of the best platforms that you can learn now then you can take either of these courses, which help you get started with either Python or Scala
I hope this helps. IMHO, learning Big Data is one of the best moves that you can make at the moment.
