New Training Course – Big Data on AWS

by Jeff Barr | on | in Training | | Comments

We have added a new Big Data course to the AWS Training program.

The three day, instructor-led course is designed to teach you how to use Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Elastic MapReduce and important Hadoop tools such as Pig and Hive. The course will show you how to create big data environments and how to leverage best practices for security and cost effectiveness.

This hands-on course is designed for Data Scientists, Data Analysts, and Enterprise Big Data Solution Architects. We recommend that attendees have a basic familiarity with big data technologies including Apache Hadoop and HDFS, a working knowledge of core AWS services and public cloud implementation, and a basic understanding of data warehousing, relational database systems, and database design.

Upcoming classes include:

  • April 22 – Redwood City, CA
  • May 6 – So Paulo, Brazil (Portugus)
  • May 21 – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Portugus)
