Just for posterity, Apache Hadoop is a software framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications under a free license. It enables applications to work with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. Hadoop was inspired by Google’s MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers. Since you arrived to this page, I’ll assume that you have some idea of what Hadoop is and what it is used for. This tutorial will walk you through an installation of Hadoop on your workstation so you can begin exploring some of its powerful features. Hadoop has traditionally been a royal pain to setup and configure properly…. View full post »

What I liked about this training was the professionalism of the course layout and Andre was full of knowledge. Andre took the time to answer all of my questions and made sure I was understanding everything we covered.
I enjoyed the exposure to Eclipse and exploring interactions within the Android environment.
- Hollis, TCI
Instructor knew all details and explained everything with extreme patience
Thank you very much - it was very informative! Ken and Boris were patient and tried their best to answer our questions - very stimulating...
Great instructor, down to earth and very knowledgeable. Taught in a manner that was easy to pick up on. Provided a ton of great code examples that I will always be able to look back to.
Good interaction over online chat w/ the instructors and others, kept an otherwise potentially dreary online experience quite interesting.
- Ganesh, EMC Corporation
I was looking for an Android bootcamp that solidified some of the basics that I already knew and progressed quickly to more advanced topics. This course definitely did that. Overall, I am very happy and I have a large example set to draw from to continue to build my skills. The lab was very practical and robust. Although it was difficult to complete, I managed to get most of it finished and the example for the lab that was provided is an excellent example as well. Also, the instructor was well-spoken and easy to listen to. This is a huge plus.
- David, Gateway Church
Trainer was extremely knowledgeable. I really appreciate as trainer helped me understand avro files and how to load them which was one of my expectations out of this course.

Serge was willing and able to jump off the scheduled presentation and answer specific questions relevant to our organization, which really helped answer some important questions we had.

Good training material and lots of labs and samples relevent to the course. The instructor spoke very clearly and at a pace that was comfortable.
This course could easily have taken longer than two days, but Boris did an awesome job breaking it down into a shorter course. He explains and demonstrates extremely well!

Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the classes this week! You did a great job and it was very informative! I've been an Oracle developer for almost 20 years now and with my busy work could never find time to get my hands on one of these new technologies. It was an eye opener.

I come from a Java background, and Android seems natural for me to pick up. Guy made the transition from Java to Android very easy. He is a very good teacher. I enjoyed this training.
The Android App Development class was very effective for me. In just two days, I learned enough material to get me started on my own. Instructor and facility were both top notch!

Android Application Development class is cutting edge. It covers best of both worlds - the basics and advanced SDK functions. The project is very relevant to the course.
- Josh, Stanford University
Goal of training met , in terms of the course objectives set my course managers
- CPT Peter Johnson, U.S.ARMY 53A ISM course
Examples were easy to understand and practical. Instructor was candid about challenges in development.
Guy is a great "guy", and did an excellent job presenting the material and ensuring people "got" it. I looked at bootcamps provided by a number of organizations, and this one was the most thorough, and had the least fluff. I don't think I've ever been as pleased with a course.
I learned alot more in 3 days and could do alot more than i thought possible.
- Joe, Mattel
The instructor was very knowledgeable, also in the iOS area, what enabled me to get answers about platform differences and similarities.
- Adam, Roche
Great presentation of material and engagement of the class. Learned a lot about services that I have been aligned with for years and got a better and deeper understanding of the content and data behind these transactions.
- Greg, Intel Corporation
Damodar was very kind and patient to keep everyone in sync, if they behind with the labs. Thank you, Damodar!
Instructor was excellent and made the course interesting.
- Elbert, AO Smith WPC
This was an intense 3-day course. The great part though is you don't need to remember everything. As long as you complete the class project, you will learn many valuable lessons. I highly recommend this course!
