Class Notes

This class was originally by Dr. Licong Cui. For the Spring 2021, we will use her teaching materials.

There will be a lot of programming projects involved using the Hadoop system with MapReduce programming style. It is required that the student be proficient in Java programming and familiar with the Unix operating system. Previous exposure to database systems and data mining concepts is helpful. Knowledge of cloud computing can be advantageous.

If you want to use your computer to install a Hadoop system, your computer must have at least 10 GB memory
