The main objective of this workshop is to give the audience hands on experience with several Hadoop technologies and jump start their hadoop journey. In this workshop, you will load data and submit queries using Hadoop! Before jumping in to the technology, the Founders of DataKitchen review Hadoop and some of its technologies (MapReduce, Hive, Pig, Impala and Spark), look at performance, and present a rubric for choosing which technology to use when.
