  • Vicky

    Actually i’m a testing guy has 2 years experience. I’m interested to learn PIG and HIVE frameworks. So which framework i can choose to learn and what is the job scope for them?. Please help me in this through

    • EdurekaSupport

      Hey Vicky, at Edureka we train our learners in using Apache Hadoop framework. Since you come from the testing domain, as a tester in Hadoop frame work, you’ll learn to ascertain whether:
      Test Data is existing or not
      Before Analysis, it is proper or not
      Post Analysis – how it should look like?
      You’ll also learn how to debug MapR codes and how to ascertain whether PIG and Hive scripts are meeting Specs or not?
      So, it will be a mix of white box-black box strategy. You can check out the course curriculum here: http://www.edureka.co/big-data-and-hadoop. Please feel free to write back to us if you need any more information. Alternatively, you can share your contact details with us and we will get in touch. Cheers!
