This course will provide students with an introduction to Apache Pig. Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for writing data analysis programs, coupled with an infrastructure for executing these programs. Pig, in conjunction with Apache Hadoop, can handle very large data sets with relatively simple programs.
The course is intended for programmers, architects, and project managers who have to process and analyze large amounts of data.
Students should have some structured programming experience. Familiarity with SQL databases is helpful but not required.
