Big Data Workshop

A one-day workshop focused on the practical side of using open-source, Big Data technologies. Participants will learn the basics of the most popular Big Data tools and technologies like: Hadoop, Hive, Spark and Kafka.

The workshop is highly focused on a practical experience. Instructors will not only teach you all the important theory but will also share their experience gained from working with Big Data technologies for several years.

Training outcome

During the workshop you will act as a Big Data engineer and analyst working for a fictional company StreamRockTM that creates an application for music streaming (like Spotify). The main goal of your work is to take advantage of Big Data technologies such as Hadoop, Spark or Hive to analyse various datasets about the users and the songs they played. We will process data in a batch manner to get the data-driven answers to important business questions. Each exercise will be executed on a remote multi-node Hadoop cluster.

Course agenda*

Part 1

Introduction to Big Data and Apache Hadoop

  • Description of StreamRock along with all its opportunities and challenges that come from Big Data technologies.

  • Introduction to core Hadoop technologies such as HDFS or YARN.

  • Hands-on exercise: Accessing a remote multi-node Hadoop cluster.

Part 2

Providing data-driven answers to business questions using SQL-like solution

  • Introduction to Apache Hive.

  • Hands-on exercise: Importing structured data into the cluster using HUE.

  • Hands-on exercise: Ad-hoc analysis of the structured data with Hive.

  • Hands-on exercise: The visualisation of results using HUE.

Part 3

Implementing scalable ETL processes on the Hadoop cluster

  • Introduction to Apache Spark, Spark SQL, and Spark DataFrames.

  • Hands-on exercise: Implementation of the ETL job to clean and massage input data using Spark.

  • Quick explanation of the Avro and Parquet binary data formats.

  • Practical tips for implementing ETL processes like process scheduling, schema management, integrations with existing systems.

Part 4

Advanced analysis of the diversified datasets

  • Hands-on exercise: Implementing ad-hoc queries using Spark SQL and DataFrames.

  • Hands-on exercise: Visualisation of the results of Spark queries using the Spark Notebook.
