  • sm says:

    Hi, Could you also recommend Core Java Training. Thanks

    • EdurekaSupport says:

      Hi Sm,
      Core Java skill is a prerequisite for learning Hadoop and learning Java as such will add value to your profile. If your career path is towards Hadoop, then learning Core Java becomes an essential step. I would suggest you to take up ‘Big Data and Hadoop’ course where you will be getting a complimentary course ‘ Comprehensive Java’ along with this. You can pace yourself by going ahead with the Java course first and then starting with Hadoop.

  • Murali says:

    I am doing my second year B.Tech Computer Science. We have just finished learning C and C++ in our curriculum and yet to begin Java. I am planning for a career in Business Analytics/Big Data. Should I finish my course and then start learning the necessary stuff or can I do something parallely now itself so that I become job ready when I graduate?

    • EdurekaSupport says:

      Hi Murali, learning Big Data at an early stage is gonna help you for sure in your career. You are planning it in the right way. My suggestion is that you cover up Java as a part of your course and then contact us for taking up Hadoop. This can go on parallely. A lot of students from 3rd and 4th year are taking up Hadoop courses from Edureka as there is a project and certification. Do mention about you are a student when enrolling, as you are entitled to receive student discount :)

  • Ankit Tale says:

    I am just BE passout and I am keenly interested in hadoop development and I wanted to move towards the data analysis path. Is it sufficient to complete hadoop and go for data analytic with r.

    • EdurekaSupport says:

      Absolutely Ankit!! People in final years are considering learning Hadoop. Reason being, lots of companies are looking for freshers in Big Data space. The prerequisite is core Jave, i’m sure you must be having knowledge on the same. Post learning Hadoop if your inclination is towards Big Data Analytics, you can also look in our Data Science course. Our Data Science course includes elements like Hadoop, R and Mahout. You can also go for R without learning Hadoop. There is no prerequisite as such but basic understanding of statistics would be beneficial. You can call us at US: 1800 275 9730 (Toll Free) or India: +91 88808 62004 to discuss in detail.
