Start developing with Hadoop. These tutorials are designed to ease your way into developing with Hadoop:
Apache Spark on HDP
Real World Examples
In this tutorial, we will build a solution to ingest real time streaming data into HBase and HDFS.
In previous tutorial we have explored generating and processing streaming data with Apache Kafka and Apache Storm. In this tutorial we will create HDFS Bolt & HBase Bolt to read the streaming data from the Kafka Spout and persist in Hive & HBase tables.
