I was able to successfully clear the CCA175 on 19th Nov and technically, I am thorough in all the topics necessary for big data - Spark, Scala, Hive, Sqoop, etc
However, I currently work on a different technical area and do not have real-world project experience on Big Data. Could any experienced professionals suggest me on the next steps for me to transition to the big data world. Here are the options that I thought of:
- Learn AWS, get certified on 'AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate' and 'AWS Certified Big Data - Specialty' - Learn further on Spark performance improvement through the 'High Performance Spark' book - Take further training/mentoring on real-world projects and transition to a big data job first and then consider the above two. Also, if anyone would like to share further details directly or would consider offering mentoring, please mail me over email@example.com.
