Hadoop has now grown into a huge community backed open source project and is the base for several other open source projects as well.The usability of Hadoop is now enhanced by an ecosystem of Apache projects, such as Pig and Hive.

This half day hands-on workshop session is targeted at Hadoopers covering a high level introduction on Hadoop and will compare the effectiveness of the different Hadoop based platforms. This session will primarily focus on effective implementation using Pig.

The Pig platform allows Hadoopers to focus more on analyzing large data sets and spend less time having to write mapper and reducer programs, and interestingly handles any kind of Data.
