Big Data Skill Chasm
+
Do I Need a Certification?
n  Certifications are good
n  if you have no practical experience
n  Consultant
n  Cloudera / Horton Works
n  You don’t need to take their courses
n  Just take the certification exams
n  Reasonably easy with preparation
n  Very affordable (few hundred $)
+
Do I Need To Take A Pay Cut?
n  Don’t hesitate to take a paycut for your first Big Data job
n  You will gain valuable practical experience
n  And the next job you will make lot more
+
Step (2) Networking
n First get your OWN business card J
n Meetups
n  tons of meetup in this area
n  My meetup : http://www.meetup.com/BigDataGurus/ J
n Conferences
n  Can be expensive (Strata $3k)
n  Beg some one for a ‘visitor pass’ J
n  Cheap conferences (HbaseConf $400, Hadoop Summit : $500)
n  Money well spent… great connections!
+
Networking : How To Find Decision
Makers?
+
Networking : Uber Networking
Tips
n  Read this book è
n  Soft Networking

n  People will REMEMBER you!
n  Volunteering
n  Help to run a meetup / event
n  You will get to know people you
otherwise wouldn’t meet
(Board of directors …etc)
+
Step (3) -- Be Known
It is not what you know
It is who you know
It is WHO knowsYOU !
+
How to Be Known
(aka How To Become an Expert!)
n Open Source
n  Huge boost to your resume
n  Write quality blogs, articles
n  Lot of magazines wants contributors
n  Write a Book
n  We did it on our own – without a publisher
n  ‘Hadoop Illuminated’ : http://hadoopilluminated.com/
n  Speak at meetups / conferences
+
Old Resume
+
Your New Resume
+
Github activity log
(employers check these !)
+
Open Source Contributions
n  Open Source involvement is a ‘hot skill’
n  Just saying ‘I used TomCat’ isn’t enough J
n  Open source tells me two things about you:
n  You are passionate about technology
(not just b/c this gig pays well)
n  You dedicate your personal time à initiative
n  Best option : Get Paid to work on open source J
cloudera, linkedin, netflix….
n  If not, you can still do meaningful contributions..
+
How to Contribute To Open Source
n  Step 1) Get a GitHub account (free)
n  Step 2) Look for open source projects to contribute
n  Hadoop, cassandra, Spark
n  Start fixing bugs (‘low hanging fruits’)
n  Step 3) Starting your own project
n  Has to be unique (not another word count example using Spark!)
n  Solve some thing you know about
n  E.g. : Mark Kerzner – eDiscovery & Hadoop
+
Personal Story : Contributing to
HBase
n  [code] Improve benchmarking tool
n  Started as a hobby project
n  Submitted patch
n  Lots help from senior developers
n  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4440
n  [documentation] improve patch submission process
n  You don’t need to be a code-ninja to contribute !!
n  Documentation is badly needed in open source projects
n  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5577
+
JIRA : HBASE-4440
+
Tips On Submissions
n  Make it easy for committers
n  Don’t create extra work for them !
+
Speaking at Meetups /
Conferences
n  Start with meetups
n  Have a unique topic
n  “solving XXX using Spark” ..etc
n  Having a popular open source project will help J J
n  Submit proposals to many conferences
n  You may not get into Strata first J
n  Pay attention to ‘local’ conferences
n  SVCodeCamp, Dataweek in SF …etc
n  Big Data conference calendar
http://elephantscale.com/bigdata_conferences
+
Acing The Interview
n  Interviewer : So , have you used Hadoop at your work? What
kind of practical experience you have?
n  If no, then usually interview ends here
n  You :
Ahem, I haven’t had a chance to use Hadoop at work…
But let me tell you about the open source project I am
working on…
* walk to whiteboard, start drawing, explain …*
* gets hired ! *
+
Step (4) Get Hired
+
Thanks !
