    Hello Fari,

    I am a QA Engineer working on SQL Server databases and planning to extend my skills in Big Data. Are there any courses specifically designed for QA Testers on Big Data?

    1. Nag,

      Good question! I haven’t come across any… bear in mind that Big Data hasn’t reached the mainstream yet… nonetheless, I highly recommend that you learn Windows Azure and Excel 2013.

    I learnt Hadoop from Intellipaat and I would say its the best institute to learn Hadoop .. There trainers are awesome and training is 60% hands on .. I did take training in edureka for Hadoop Developer got fascinated by their site but there is hardly any hands on also the trainer they showed me in sample recording that trainer didnt take the class at all.

    Hope this review will help for newbie on Hadoop who are looking out for training
