Why Arpita switched to Big Data
Arpita worked with many technologies like Java, Maven, Linux, Oracle, CDI, and she had a basic knowledge of Big Data and HDFS. Even after being good at so many technologies, she wanted to learn more so she could keep up with the industry. She found Big Data as the future of the IT industry and noticed a continuous growth in this industry. She then decided to take a right move toward Big Data.
While working with older technologies, I felt a need to keep myself updated with newer technology. I found Big Data as the latest growing technology in IT world as it is mandatory for everyone, today or later you will have to learn it. I could see my bright future in this industry because data proliferation will never end. Hence, companies will always need Big Data professionals to handle the large volume of data. Then, I decided to choose Hadoop and Big Data as my career.
How Arpita learned Big Data
Arpita knew the basics of Big Data and HDFS. To learn more, she started looking for the online institutes who could provide better guidance for Big Data. She inquired at many institutes, asked them details for the course. Then she finalized DataFlair as the best one, enrolled for Big Data Hadoop and Spark course. She started learning Big Data with DataFlair. Here, she got hands-on experience through live projects and assignments. Also, she learned all the concepts of Big Data and Hadoop. She shared -
Only with the help of DataFlair, it became possible for me to learn Big Data and Hadoop quickly. After enrolling for the Big Data Hadoop and Spark course, I started my learning.
