You may have heard that Microsoft has a free learning platform that offers interactive material to help you up-level your skills. But did you know Azure HDInsight has a whole learning path, with over three hours of material available for you to learn how Azure HDInsight can meet your businesses growing need for analytics?
Whether you’re new to cloud scale analytics, interested in migrating your on-premises analytics to the cloud, or even if you’ve gone in depth with one of the open source technologies Azure HDInsight integrates with, this course will show you the benefits of using each of the cluster types available on Azure HDInsight, what scenarios work best with each technology, and how to integrate those technologies with visualization tools such as Power BI and Jupyter Notebooks.
There are currently six modules in the Building Open Source Software (OSS) Analytical Solutions with Azure HDInsight learning path (with more to come), and in this blog we’ll take a look at what you’ll learn in each one. Think of a module as a chapter in a book, and the learning path as the whole book. Throughout each module you’ll complete tutorials, read, and fill in short quizzes to check your learning.
Keep in mind that you can complete these modules at your own pace. Once you create a Learn profile and sign-in, your progress will be automatically tracked by the Learn site, and you’ll earn XP (experience points) as you go. As you complete modules and learning paths, you’ll earn badges and a trophy that you can share on social media to impress all your friends!
Get started by going to Building Open Source Software (OSS) Analytical Solutions with Azure HDInsight and starting your learning path today. Feel free to post your feedback, issues, or requests about HDInsight learning content to this page or via the Feedback channel.
