String together your understanding of Yet Another Resource Negotiator (YARN) by gaining exposure to MapReduce1, the tool-sets that start the processing of Big Data.
Ever wonder how to program a pig and an elephant to work together? Start with dedication, a couple of tricks up your sleeve, and instructions that the beasts understand. This learning path is dedicated to address these programming requirements by filtering and sorting what you need to know and how you need to convey your message.
About this learning path
They say that it is not the destination but the journey that got you there that matters. When you have completed this learning path, concepts such as how parallelism is performed on a cluster will be second nature. Your awareness of how to program, either using high-level or low-level languages will be highlights along the way. This learning path incorporates MapReduce and YARN, an introduction to Apache Pig, and simplifying data pipelines with Apache Kafka.
What did the 3rd little Pig do with his time after the big bad wolf left the brick house deflated? We know. Instead of building, he started writing mapper and reducer programs so that you wouldn't have to. Let the Pig help you outsmart the next big bad wolf!
When you hear the terms, producer, consumer, topic category, broker, and cluster used together to describe a messaging system, something is brewing in the pipelines. Get connected and learn what that is, and what it means!
