Prerequisites and Requirements

This course is intended for students with some experience with Hadoop and MapReduce, Python, and bash commands.

You’ll have to be able to work with HDFS and write MapReduce programs. You can learn about these in our Intro to Hadoop and MapReduce course.

The MapReduce programs in the course are written in Python. It is possible to use Java and other languages, but we suggest using Python, on the level of our Intro to Computer Science course.

You’ll also be using remote cloud machines, so you’ll need to know these bash commands:

  • ssh
  • scp
  • cat
  • head/tail

You’ll also need to be able to work in an editor such as vim or nano. You can learn about these in our Linux Command Line Basics course.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

Using massive datasets to guide decisions is becoming more and more important for modern businesses. Hadoop and MapReduce are fundamental tools for working with big data. By knowing how to deploy your own Hadoop clusters, you’ll be able to start exploring big data on your own.
