Thanks Carter for the pretty careful instructions. I have gone as far as downloading the Talend zip file and starting it up (on my Macbook Pro) and I found the demo zip. I have yet to try and make connections to the Sandbox VM. Is there a file that describes a “happy path” execution of a job defined in talend against HDP (in my case inside the Sandbox) so that files are created in HDFS and you can see results in the file browser, or perhaps back in the Talend UI. The webinar mentioned Apache logs as input. Does the demo include such a log?
I appreciate the encouragement to think of the sandbox as a full HDP pseudo-cluster.
I may try to install R Studio and Revolution Analytics rmr2 library in the sandbox — I have done this against a Cloudera demo VM but their Hue instance is missing the Pig and HCatalog panels so I think I would rather be working in an HDP environment.
