Big Data – Free Hadoop Online Training Course from MapR

This article represents quick information on free Hadoop online on-demand training that has been announced yesterday by MapR Technologies, the Hadoop distribution specialist. I took Hadoop Essentials course and I must say that I liked the training session. The downside of these training sessions is that you would soon hit MapR related technologies in relation with MapReduce, HBase, HDFS. However, that said, its worth giving a shot. Please feel free to comment/suggest if I missed to mention one or more important points. Also, sorry for the typos.
