Overview

On this accelerated 3-day Big Data Essentials course, you'll learn the fundamentals of architecting and running Big Data systems.

You'll get the full hands-on experience with our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which will immerse you in the curriculum, helping you gain an in-depth understanding of how to use best practices, tools and techniques essential in building modern-day Big Data applications.

Your expert instructors will take you through various applications such as Hadoop, NoSQL and Spark.

You'll learn to:

  • Master the best practices of Hadoop programming in Pig, Hive, and Java.
  • Enhance Big Data solutions for real-time data access with the help of NoSQL technologies, such as HBase and Cassandra.
  • Understand the difference of NoSQL data modeling in contrast to SQL data modeling.
  • Utilise Spark for interactive data analytics with Scala or SQL.
  • Implement near-real-time analytical processing with Spark Streaming.

You'll also have 24/7 lab access, which means you can test your skills in building successful Big Data systems whenever you want.

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 (Monday) to 22/2/2020 (Saturday))

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
