by Ostatic Staff - May. 02, 2016

MapR Technologies, primarily focused on Hadoop, has been out with a number of interesting training offerings in the data analytics area. According to MapR, as it rolled out last year, its training program enrolled more than 10,000 registrants worldwide in its first 30 days.

Now, the company is offering training in one of the most cutting-edge data analytics spaces of all: streaming data analysis. Via MapR Academy’s free On-Demand Training program, the new offering enables Apache Kafka developers to extend their real-time analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Developers can also focus on MapR Streams that provides Kafka-compatibility, integrated security and multi-data center support as an integrated component of the MapR Converged Data Platform.

According to MapR:

"MapR Streams is the newly released, global event publish and subscribe framework that is integrated directly into the MapR Converged Data Platform. MapR converges the power of Hadoop, Spark and other open source technologies into one unified, enterprise-grade platform for streaming, real-time database capabilities, and enterprise storage."

The free curriculum from MapR based on stream processing, includes:

DEV 350 - Streams Essentials training provides developers a broad understanding of the core concepts behind stream processing and prepares them to begin using MapR Streams. Sample topics include MapR Streams overview, use cases, Streams architecture, core components, and summary of “life of a message.”

DEV 351 - Streams Development training gives developers the core concepts necessary to build simple MapR Streams applications as well as a basic framework for building and configuring Stream Processing applications. Sample topics include creating a stream, developing/configuring stream producers and consumers, describing properties, and options for producers and consumers.

  MapR claims that more than 50,000 professionals have enrolled in MapR Academy’s On-Demand Training for Hadoop education.

“Companies interested in Apache Kafka will immediately see the value of our growing library of free on-demand training courses that focus on data-in-motion for real-time analytics and IoT applications,” said Suzanne Ferry, vice president of global education and training, MapR Technologies. “MapR Academy has created these new courses to deliver best-in-class professional training on critical big data technologies like Kafka and MapR Streams to both development and IT operations teams.”
