Recap: Learn Hadoop in 7 Days Challenge

You did it! Last Sunday we challenged you to “Learn Hadoop in 7 days”. We hope that you have risen to the test and kept up with the tutorials we’ve posted each day through Twitter and Facebook. These tutorials should have helped you delve into:

By now, you should feel comfortable with Hadoop clickstream analysis, Hortonworks ODBC driver configuration, and many other important components of Hadoop. Maybe you even used the publicly available data sets we mentioned in the Hadoop tutorials for reference.

We encourage you to take your fresh Hadoop knowledge a step further and enroll in our training courses. These courses will provide you with even more immersive, realistic Hadoop application. You can also check out the Hortonworks Sandbox Partner Gallery and get some valuable tips from our partners on how they employ Hadoop.

As an added bonus, you are welcome to publish your own tutorial here after completing our challenge – and if you do we’ll do our best to send you a plushy, (and incredibly cute) stuffed Hortonworks elephant.

Congratulations to everyone who participated!
