So here it is.
I am getting many times questions like how much it takes to learn Hadoop? How much time I need to spend on training before I can start my professional career in that area.
The short answer I have: “No free Lunch”.
I might be old school but I honestly believe that in order to be great in something, you must have the passion.
My short answer is: 3-5 months.
- You dont just read but you actually setup your own cluster with 2-3 nodes and code – yes code.
- You get 2-3 books, read and practice.
Next time I will elaborate on my short answer.
