I’ve been in training all this week and today I took a certification test to be a cloudera certified hadoop developer. I find it mildly amusing that the first professional certification I have ever gotten is in something whose primary user are java developers. I anticipate that most of my interactions with hadoop with primarily be using hadoop streaming for MapReduce tasks.
But yes, I am certified having written a full two, that’s right, count them, TWO MapReduce apps. What else can I call myself a pro in that I’ve only done twice? Laser tag?
