Hi!. Thank you for the tutorial. I’m really interested in Hadoop-R connectivity and integration. By the way I have installed 7.0 version of RR in a standalone hadoop installation with Rhadoop packages and it seems to work fine. .I would like to know if there’s a way to obtain the R script used in the video example. I couldn’t find it at hortonworks site nor RR website.

Thank you
