The discipline’s purpose is to introduce students to basic principles and terms of the BigData and Hadoop world.


Basic knowledge is developed for Hadoop’s main components and their configurations. Students are introduced to instruments for data extraction and processing from different sources. Attention is focused on the ways for processing and analysis of the received data with instruments for data reading. On the other hand, with programming languages, knowledge is developed on how to execute most of the operations needed to process data in BigData with the so called Data Processing Engines. After BigData introduction, the course continues with introduction to cloud technologies – basic terms, distributors and their capabilities.
The discipline is based on the student’s knowledge from the Bachelor’s degree: Relational databases, Programing basics, Data visualization.
