Data is rapidly growing. We're dealing with data of all shapes and sizes being generated faster than ever before. Apache Hadoop is a platform that has emerged to help extract insight from all that data. In this session, you will learn the basics of Hadoop, how to get up and running with Hadoop in the cloud, and how to use Java, C# and F# to write Hadoop jobs and work with other parts of the Hadoop platform. No previous experience with Hadoop is required!
