Hadoop for .NET Developers

by Elton Stoneman

Big Data is becoming part of every company, and Hadoop is the core technology for storing and accessing huge quantities of data. This course will teach you how to use Hadoop in the Microsoft world - running on Windows and using .NET to write queries.

What you'll learn

Big Data is an established discipline, and every company can benefit from storing and analyzing large amounts of data to improve their products and services. Hadoop is the key technology in Big Data, but it's too often seen as something which is only for Java and Linux people. This course, Hadoop for .NET Developers, will teach you how to use this key technology. First, you'll learn how to bring Hadoop into a Microsoft environment. You'll also discover how to run the services on Windows and create fast, understandable MapReduce queries in .NET using C#. The course takes a proof-of-concept approach, demonstrating how to evaluate Hadoop on Windows with .NET and .NET Core. By the end of the course, you'll be able to start your own Hadoop journey with confidence.
