I would like to inform that I was able to make a transition into Big Data domain and land a job as Big Data Engineer. I am basically from mainframe background with 8 years of experience. I wanted to make a technology shift and move into Big Data domain. When I was searching for online resources, I stumbled upon ITversity you tube channel. After going through a few of the introductory videos, I got to know about Hadoop and Spark Developer training. I attended the one month paid course that ITversity offered in June and July 2016. Parallel to the course I started applying for Big Data Engineer jobs and got interview calls.
I could successfully clear the initial tech interview and then later client interviews through the knowledge I acquired here. The Hadoop and Spark Developer course, the telephonic conversations that I had with Mr. Durga Gadiraju and the detailed video tutorials in ITVersity channel helped me immensely in transitioning from a mainframe background into Big Data world. It took me 8 months time to learn the skills, make a transition and land a job in Big Data world - much of the credits go to ITversity channel and immense knowledge sharing that was offered by both the channel and course.
As of November, I joined Hadoop Data Transition team of one of the major US automobile company in Detroit. It’s quite an exciting atmosphere here to build further on the skills that I acquired through ITversity courses.
Thank you Durga and thank you ITversity.
