    12. 12. 12Goals of the Partnership• Train engineering students on Apache Hadoop to future-proof theircore technical education and address the Big Data talent gap• Provide high-quality curricula, instruction, and courseware touniversities who want to improve graduate competitiveness• Certify students with Hadoop professional credentials tocomplement their degrees and increase hireability• Supply research departments state-of-the-art technologyto promote the next wave of breakthroughs in Big Data• Offer colleges and universities options for datamanagement and analytics degree program requirements
    13. 13. 13We were able to jumpstart an Introduction to BigData Analytics course thanks to the support ofCloudera. The materials provided, including thelab setup, are integral to the class.
    14. 14. 14Partnership Roles and Responsibilities• Program management• Authorized course materials• Cloudera Manager license• Discounted teacher training• Discounted certification examsCloudera• Authorized faculty instructor• Classroom facilities and labs• Recruitment and registration• Course materials distribution• High-quality learning experienceAcademic Partners
    15. 15. 15Hadoop Course OverviewDurationOne semester: 12 three-hour sessionsPrerequisitesJava programming course or experienceLearning Objectives• Hadoop technology and ecosystem overview• How HDFS and MapReduce work• Develop and unit test MapReduce applications• MapReduce combiners, partitioners, and the distributed cache• MapReduce algorithms, debugging, and best practices• Integrate Hadoop into the data center• Hardware configurations and network considerations for the Hadoop cluster• Optimize Hadoop settings for cluster performance• FairScheduler and multiple-user SLAs• Hadoop cluster maintenance and management
    16. 16. 16My goal is to cut up to 12 months out of thetraining that graduates need when they gethired. But there is not great clarity in theacademic world about what Big Data is.Cloudera has helped tremendously with that.
