Have you heard of MapReduce? How about Data Lake or petabytes? If you’ve heard these big data terms before and weren’t sure exactly what they meant, it’s time to find out. CloudU today is launching its “Bigger is Better” Big Data Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
Is more better? Not always, but when it comes to more industry leaders contributing to the CloudU Big Data Massive Open Online Course (MOOC); more is definitely better. As CloudU continues to extend its reach beyond its online presence, the program will sponsor the first ever Open BigCloud and Open Compute Project (OCP) Workshop at The University of Texas in San Antonio (UTSA). The event will take place Wednesday, May 7 and Thursday, May 8 on the UTSA campus.
As web applications, connected devices and the Internet of Things become more prominent, cloud computing has seeped into our personal and professional lives. But if you’re not savvy with system administration or computer programming languages, “the cloud” can be a confusing, abstract concept. If you fall in this camp, fear not – we’ve relaunched Cloud University, aka CloudU, to help you sharpen your cloud knowledge.
