- Released: [Assignment #0 - Hadoop Cluster Setup]. Due: Mon, January 24, 11:59AM.
This course aims to provide students an understanding in the operating principles and hands-on experience with mainstream Big Data Computing systems. Open-source platforms for Big Data processing and analytics would be discussed. Topics to be covered include:
- Programming models and design patterns for mainstream Big Data computational frameworks ;
- System Architecture and Resource Management for Data-center-scale Computing ;
- System Architecture and Programming Interface of Distributed Big Data stores ;
- High-level Big Data Query languages and their processing systems ;
- Operational and Programming tools for different stages of the Big Data processing pipeline including data collection/ ingestion, serialization and migration, workflow coordination.
Prerequisite: This course contains substantial hands-on components which require solid background in programming and hands-on operating systems experience. If you have never used a command-line interface to install/configure/manage an operating system, e.g. a linux-based one, you will need to pick-up the skills yourself and IT CAN BE VERY TIME-CONSUMING for you to complete the homeworks. (Students without the aforementioned required background may take several 10’s of hours to finish EACH homework assignment).
Please check Blackboard for important announcements, assignment submissions, grades, etc.
The grade is based on the following components (tentative):
- Homework & Programming Assignments (5 sets): 60%
- Project with Presentation: 10%
- Final Exam: 30%
If face to face exam cannot be held, the course assessment scheme will be revised as follows:
- Homework & Programming Assignments (5 sets): 65%
- Project with Presentation: 10%
- Q&A Assignment: 25%
