Hadoop SDK and Tutorials for Microsoft .NET Developers

Microsoft has begun to treat its developer community to a number of Hadoop-y releases related to its HDInsight (Hadoop in the cloud) service, and it’s worth rounding up the material. It’s all Alpha and Preview so YMMV but looks like fun:

  • Microsoft .NET SDK for Hadoop. This kit provides .NET API access to aspects of HDInsight including HDFS, HCatalag, Oozie and Ambari, and also some Powershell scripts for cluster management. There are also libraries for MapReduce and LINQ to Hive. The latter is really interesting as it builds on the established technology for .NET developers to access most data sources to deliver the capabilities of the de facto standard for Hadoop data query.
  • HDInsight Labs Preview. Up on Github, there is a series of 5 labs covering C#, JavaScript and F# coding for MapReduce jobs, using Hive, and then bringing that data into Excel. It also covers some Mahout use to build a recommendation engine.
  • Microsoft Hive ODBC Driver. The examples above use this preview driver to enable the connection from Hive to Excel.

If all of the above excites you our Hadoop on Windows for Developers training course also similar content in a lot of depth.

You can read more about the partnership between Hortonworks and Microsoft here, and you can download a preview of HDP for Windows here, or sign up for HDInsight over here. And if you’re hungry for more Hadoop tutorials, grab our own Hortonworks Sandbox here.
