Getting Started Writing YARN Applications

Register for a webinar on December 18th

There is a lot of information available on the benefits of Apache YARN but how do you get started building applications? On December 18 at 9am Pacific Time, Hortonworks will host a webinar and go over just that:  what independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers need to do to take the first steps towards developing applications or integrating existing applications on YARN.

Register for the webinar here.


As Hadoop gains momentum it’s important to recognize the benefits to customers and the competitive advantage software vendors will have if their application is integrated with YARN like elasticity, reliability and efficiency. We will take a few minutes to drill into these benefits and the importance of getting started on YARN now.

Hear from a company who has integrated their application on YARN

We have a number of partners who have gone through the process and it’s always helpful to hear about their experiences. We have invited Actian to be our guest speaker to share their business drivers, lessons learned and advice to other developers embarking on YARN application development. Actian had developed big data analytics platforms for Hadoop and ETL/DQ for Hadoop that include a wide array of ready-to-use data access, data quality, de-dup, data preparation, distributed analytics and machine learning capabilities.

Who should attend?

The webinar is aimed at software vendors and developers interested in building applications on YARN. System integrators that will be helping their customers get the most out of their Hadoop infrastructure will also find this webinar helpful.

Step by step guidance for building YARN applications

The goal of the webinar is to help you get started in a step by step method, along with the resources available to support your goals. We look forward to seeing you there and also hearing from those that have experiences to share.

Register now, Dec. 18 at 9am PT.
