Video Premiere: Training a New Generation of Data Scientists
Tuesday, March 26 at 11 AM (Pacific)
Josh Wills

Data scientists drive data as a platform to answer previously unimaginable questions. These multi-talented data professionals are in demand like never before because they identify or create some of the most exciting and potentially profitable business opportunities across industries. However, a scarcity of existing external talent will require companies of all sizes to find, develop, and train their people with backgrounds in software engineering, statistics, or traditional business intelligence as the next generation of data scientists.

Join us for the premiere of Training a New Generation of Data Scientists on Tuesday, March 26 at 11 AM (Pacific). In this video, Cloudera's Senior Director of Data Science, Josh Wills, will discuss what data scientists do, how they think about problems, the relationship between data science and Hadoop, and how Cloudera training can help you join this growing and increasingly important profession. Following the video, Josh will be available to answer your questions about data science, Hadoop, and Cloudera's Introduction to Data Science: Building Recommender Systems course.

Video: Rapleaf Works Smarter with Cloudera

Rapleaf helps clients "fill in the blanks" about their customers by taking contact lists and, in real time, providing supplemental data points, statistics, and aggregate charts and graphs that are guaranteed to have greater than 90% accuracy. Cloudera gives Rapleaf the peace of mind that their mission-critical Hadoop infrastructure won't go down, and Cloudera Manager specifically offers numerous advantages -- such as job-level statistics, configuration management, and visibility into long-term trends -- that improve Rapleaf's operational efficiency.

Cloudera University
Meet the Instructor: Glynn Durham
Cloudera Data Science

In this installment of “Meet the Instructor,” we speak to San Francisco-based Glynn Durham, one of the big brains behind Cloudera’s Introduction to Data Science training and certification.

For me, Hadoop represents the continuation of a lifelong professional interest in digital data as a useful abstraction of the real world. As an instructor, there’s nothing better than observing an a-ha moment. Training allows me to contribute to that process all the time—I’m even the one on the learning end now and again! I enjoy meeting people whose eyes light up when they start to think about what a platform like Hadoop enables. I get to learn a lot, not just about Cloudera’s technology (which is awesome, by the way), but also about what customers are finding to do with their data. It just goes on and on!

My enthusiasm for teaching, broadly, goes way back to junior high school in Louisiana, where I tutored a classmate who was failing geometry. Like me, he later went on to become a successful engineer. I find it rewarding to think that I actually made a difference in that guy’s life. I like to think that, all these years later, I am still doing the same thing: with a few days’ mutual commitment, we can provide real value to individuals in our classrooms.

In a previous chapter of my life, I interned with the recording engineers at Tiny Telephone, a famous recording studio in San Francisco that favors legacy analog techniques. I spent many, many hours aligning tape decks and setting up signal chains, then listening to all sorts of musicians work their magic. Great fun!

Free Hadoop Operations Ebook

Start spring off with bigger questions by taking advantage of Cloudera University’s special offer for aspiring Hadoop Administrators. All participants who complete a public Cloudera Administrator Training for Apache Hadoop by the end of March will receive a free digital copy of Hadoop Operations by Eric Sammer. If you’ve been asked to maintain large and complex Hadoop clusters, this book is a must. In addition to providing practical guidance from an expert, Hadoop Operations is also a terrific companion reference to the full Cloudera Administrator course.

Cloudera’s three-day course provides administrators a comprehensive understanding of all the steps necessary to operate and manage Hadoop clusters. From installation and configuration through load balancing and tuning your cluster, Cloudera’s administration course has you covered. This course is appropriate for system administrators and others who will be setting up or maintaining a Hadoop cluster. Basic Linux experience is a prerequisite, but prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required.
