Over the last several weeks, Hortonworks has made a number of announcements regarding the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), including the upcoming release of HDP on Windows, the only Apache Hadoop distribution available on Microsoft Windows. We’ve been busy expanding out Hadoop training offerings: we now offer classes for HDP on Windows, you can find training in Europe through our global training partners and you can join us for Apache Hadoop courses in our new corporate headquarters, where you can have lunch with one of the committers. We continue to believe that community-driven open source is the fastest way to innovation and our the classes we offer on Apache Hadoop provide the best way to build the skills that are in demand — not skills on proprietary implementations but rather skills on open source Apache Hadoop.
Hortonworks is the only Hadoop distribution to run on Windows and we’ve released the Understanding Apache Hadoop on Microsoft Windows course. This is a 4-day course that provides students with an overview of the Hortonworks Data Platform and is Understanding Apache Hadoop on Microsoft Windows. The course has a prerequisite of existing knowledge of the Visual Studio platform with C#, and SQL server and will be structured to provide you with about half of the class time working with hands on labs. This course will cover Hadoop installation on Windows, how data is ingested into Hadoop, and how data can be queried and visualized. Training classes start in April.
We’ve expanded our global footprint with training partners.
Finally, we’re very excited to be in our new corporate headquarters where we have a great training room. If the sound of Northern California in the early spring sounds good to you (can you say daytime temperatures in the high 60s?) then be sure to register for an Apache Hadoop training class in our headquarters and enjoy our new home! Not only will you enjoy a stay in the elephant house, during the training class, we’ll invite one of our committers to have lunch with the group. There is nowhere else can you have such an small group session with one of the Apache community experts.
We’re curious, what locations would you like to see us deliver public courses on Apache Hadoop?
