Big Data Processing Using Hadoop

As a CS freshman I was required to present on an emerging technology of my choice. I chose Big Data Processing Using Hadoop, with the focus being on general understanding of the core rather than technical depth. So here is a four part general write up:

Part 1 covers the very fundamentals of Big Data and Google’s milestone contribution towards its processing.

Part 2 discusses the development of Hadoop- an open source approach for the processing of Big Data.

Part 3 focuses on the MapReduce Framework.

Part 4 presents a simplified illustrative example focussing on just the core of the working of the MapReduce Framework.
