The Hadoop MapReduce API
Learn how to get started writing programs against Hadoop’s API.
Introduction to MapReduce Algorithms
Writing programs for MapReduce requires analyzing problems in a new way. This lecture shows how some
common functions can be expressed as part of a MapReduce pipeline.
Debugging MapReduce programs
Debugging in the distributed environment is challenging. This lecture will expose you to best practices for program
design to mitigate debugging challenges, as well as local testing tools and techniques for debugging at scale.
Optimizing MapReduce Programs
We’ll use the Cloudera Training VM to work through an example where you write a MapReduce program and
improve its performance using techniques explored earlier.
NOTE: Attendees should download the Cloudera Training vm from http://cloudera.com/hadoop-training-virtual-machine. VMWare Player (windows, linux) or VMWare Fusion (OS X) will be required in order to use it.
