Notice: We are currently working on maintenance and updating the certification exam platform for the HDPCD exam to ensure that you have the smoothest experience possible with attempting the exams. As a result, we will not be accepting any new scheduling of the HDPCD exam until an estimated date of August 15, 2018. Please check back soon for further updates.
Our certifications are exclusively hands-on, performance-based exams that require you to complete a set of tasks. By performing tasks on an actual Hadoop cluster instead of just guessing at multiple-choice questions, Hortonworks Certified Professionals have proven competency and Big Data expertise. The HDP Certified Developer (HDPCD) exam has three main categories of tasks that involve:
The exam is based on the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.4 installed and managed with Ambari 2.2, which includes Pig 0.15.0, Hive 1.2.1, Sqoop 1.4.6, and Flume 1.5.2. Each candidate will be given access to an HDP 2.4 cluster along with a list of tasks to be performed on that cluster.
To be fully prepared for the HDP Certified Developer exam, candidates should be able to complete all of the exam objectives.
