Working with Big Data: Infrastructure, Algorithms, and Visualizations LiveLessons presents a high level overview of big data and how to use key tools to solve your data challenges. This introduction to the three areas of big data includes:
• Infrastructure - how to store and process big data
• Algorithms - how to integrate algorithms into your big data stack and an introduction to classification
The goal was not to be exhaustive, but rather, to provide a higher level view of how all the pieces of a big data architecture work together.

In Unstructured Storage and Hadoop you learn how to set up Hadoop, load files into the Hadoop File System (HDFS), and write your first map reduce job.
In Structured Storage and Cassandra you will set up Cassandra, learn how to model data in Cassandra's column oriented storage, use Cassandra from a Ruby library, and write data into Cassandra from a Hadoop map reduce job.
Real Time Processing and Messaging is about real-time processing with messaging systems. Specifically, you will learn about Kafka, an open-source distributed messaging system. You'll install Kafka, read and write data from the messaging server, write data into Hadoop, and learn how to mplement highly available and scalable message consumers.
Working with Machine Learning Algorithms introduces you to machine learning and the k-nearest neighbors algorithm. In it you will implement k-nearest neighbors, prepare raw text for use with machine learning algorithms, and make predictions using k-nearest neighbors.
In Experimentation and Running Algorithms in Production you learn how to test the accuracy of machine
learning models and how to integrate them into a running big data architecture.
