Big Data Interview Questions and Answers (Part 2)

This is our second installment of our Big Data Interview Questions and Answers webinar. Click for the first one. It’s always fun to host one of these webinars and especially it was fun hosting this one because the questions came from the Hadoop In Real World community. So these were real interview question asked in real interviews.

Spark stole the webinar in 2018

We did this webinar in Nov 2018 and our first webinar on interview question was on Nov 2017. Back in 2017 our community sent us a lot of Hadoop related questions to answer. In 2018, the focus was more on Spark.

We quite often hosts webinars like these, sign up below to get invitations to join one of our webinars.
