If you're building relational, time series, IoT, or real-time architectures using Hadoop, you should be familiar with Apache Kudu. Kudu enables fast analytics on fast data by completing Hadoop’s storage layers, providing a new option to achieve fast scans and fast random access from a single API. This Learning Path introduces you to Apache Kudu, exploring what it is, when to use it, and how to use it in conjunction with popular Hadoop ecosystem tools. You’ll apply this knowledge by building and running a real-time analytical application using Kudu, Impala, Kafka, and Spark.
This is an entry level course for computer engineering professionals, dedicated makers, and advanced hobbyists wanting to explore FPGA technology for the first time. It provides basic instruction on how to setup, design, and build digital logic circuits using a low cost FPGA board and the Xilinx Integrated Synthesis Environment (ISE). It also provides an introduction to Verilog HDL (hardware description language), a specialized computer language used to describe the structure and behavior of digital logic circuits. It's a hands-on course where you'll build simple breadboard circuits and use them to test the FPGA logic designs that you create.
