In the tech job market race these days, hardly any trend is drawing more attention than Big Data. And, when talking Big Data, the subject of Hadoop inevitably comes up, but Spark is becoming an increasingly popular topic. IBM and other companies have made huge commitments to Spark, and workers who have both Hadoop and Spark skills are much in demand.With that in mind MapR Technologies and other providers are offering free Hadoop and Spark training. In many cases, the training is available online and on-demand, so you can learn at your own pace.With its sights set on making Hadoop training for developers and administrators easy to complete, Hadoop distribution provider MapR Technologies has unveiled several free on-demand training offerings. You can visit here to see the full list of courses, certifications and to sign up for free classes. MapR's leaders are wrapping Spark into the teaching curriculum as well. Cloudera also has an expanded Apache Spark training curriculum, although many of its classes are available for small fees. For more information about the courses on Spark and to register for a class, visit to Cloudera:"Cloudera University’s three-day Spark course enables participants to build complete, unified big data applications combining batch, streaming, and interactive analytics on all their data. With Spark, developers can write sophisticated parallel applications for faster business decisions and better user outcomes, applied to a wide variety of use cases, architectures, and industries. This course is part of the developer learning path."The three-day Spark course from Cloudera is available online, on demand. These training programs promise to make a difference. According to Nick Heudecker and Lisa Kart, research directors, Gartner Inc., “As more organizations invest in big data, the shortage of available skills and capabilities will become more acute. Instead of facing a difficult recruiting market, organizations should focus on adapting available skills and engaging with established service providers to fill the skills gap.”
