Firstly, I wanna thank Durga sir and Arun Sir for their wonderful course and blog. Their lectures and examples are very helpful for preparation.
Regarding the exam preparation, it took 2 months for me to complete the certification.1 month for course completion and 1 month for practice. I got 2 sqoop,1 hive, and 6 spark questions. The questions are easy but the real challenge is how fast you can complete them. Also while compressing avro with snappy .we won’t see the resulting file as filename .snappy.avro instead we will get it like filename.avro.We have to be quick while solving the problems. I got 7/9 in the exam .make sure to check the result after executing the program(I made this mistake which resulted in 2 wrong answers).
Currently, I’m a reports developer/ administrator. The job market behaves such that to get into Big data(Data Engineer) and to crack interviews we should have prior experience with Big Data(Not I learned Big Data).it would be really helpful if you can churn out a course on practical training on real-time issues in the organizations and real-world problems in Big-Data. Hope ITVersity provides examples of real-time environments which includes project flow (Starting of code from Dev to deploying it in Prod), Performace issues and reference books we need to follow and so on. There is a lot of material and videos available online and the path is unclear on what is required and what is not.
Kindly let me know if any such course is available from ITversity and guide us on how to get a Job in Big Data.
