Passed CCA 175 on July/21/2020

Hi All, I have cleared my exam with 9/9. Big Thanks to Durga and his lab.

I would like to add few points:

  1. Very important!!! It seems like environment was changed again (cloudera removed video about their latest demo of environment) and I worked with very slow cluster. The ctrl+c/v didn’t work - this is bad news. The good news - I could use notepad++ and another terminal window for “hdfs dfs” commands and it looks better then it was in their demo.
    I observed bad behavior with using ctrl+c also!

  2. This labs enough for the success. All topics were covered completely. I spent 1.20 hour for solving all tasks because I practiced a lot. The tasks were more easy then labs.

  3. I also used Arun’s blog for preparing, but now it’s wasting time (As I’ve already said this labs enough)

  4. I got a lot of tasks for reading data in text format with separator ( you should pay more attention for this), and some tasks for converting data to different formats such as parquet/orc/avro/text with some compression options. I also had some tasks with reading and writing tables to hive. You should be familiar with simple operations
    like concat, substr etc…

  5. I didn’t use any args for spark-shell ( I only used --packages … for avro) and I all tasks were solved with using spark dataframe api and spark sql
