Description

What you’ll learn

  • Work with unstructured data to extract information, transform it and store it in a usable form
  • Write intermediate level Pig scripts to munge data
  • Optimize Pig operations which work on large data sets

Prerequisites: Working with Pig requires some basic knowledge of the SQL query language, a brief understanding of the Hadoop eco-system and MapReduce 

Taught by a team which includes 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers  and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts. This team has decades of practical experience in working with large-scale data processing jobs. 

Pig is aptly named, it is omnivorous, will consume any data that you throw at it and bring home the bacon!

Let’s parse that 

omnivorousPig works with unstructured data. It has many operations which are very SQL-like but Pig can perform these operations on data sets which have no fixed schema. Pig is great at wrestling data into a form which is clean and can be stored in a data warehouse for reporting and analysis.

bring home the baconPig allows you to transform data in a way that makes is structured, predictable and useful, ready for consumption.

What’s Covered: 

Pig Basics: Scalar and Complex data types (Bags, Maps, Tuples), basic transformations such as Filter, Foreach, Load, Dump, Store, Distinct, Limit, Order by and other built-in functions.

Advanced Data Transformations and Optimizations: The mind-bending Nested Foreach, Joins and their optimizations using “parallel”, “merge”, “replicated” and other keywords, Co-groups and Semi-joins, debugging using Explain and Illustrate commands

Real-world example: Clean up server logs using Pig

Who this course is for:

  • Yep! Analysts who want to wrangle large, unstructured data into shape
  • Yep! Engineers who want to parse and extract useful information from large datasets

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
