NOTE: This course does not teach Big Data concepts, nor does it cover how to use Cloudera software. Instead, it is meant as a precursor for one of our developer-focused training courses that provide those skills, such as Developer Training for Spark and Hadoop I or Developer Training for Apache Spark.
