Please note: This course is delivered by accredited Hortonworks instructors. The syllabus includes specific use cases and examples to help illustrate and reinforce the theory and the functionality of the technology being explored. Where possible, the instructor will provide further examples and answer questions relevant to an individual delegates specific application of the technology. However, due to the complexity of the technology and the breadth of application across industries, this may not always be possible in the classroom environment.

This course provides a technical introduction to the fundamentals of Apache Storm and Trident that includes the concepts, terminology, architecture, installation, operation, and management of Storm and Trident. Simple Storm and Trident code excerpts are provided throughout the course. The course also includes an introduction to, and code samples for, Apache Kafka. Apache Kafka is a messaging system that is commonly used in concert with Storm and Trident

Target Audience

Hadoop developers who need to be able to design and build Storm and Kafka applications using Java and the Trident API.


Please note: Hortonworks courses are delivered using electronic courseware. for delegates attending remotely (Virtual classes or Attend from Anywhere) you must ensure that you have dual monitors or a single monitor plus tablet device. Dual monitors are required in order to allow you to view labs and lab instructions on separate screens.

Technical pre-requisites

Students must have experience developing Java applications and using a Java IDE. Labs are completed using the Eclipse IDE and Gradle. Students should have a basic understanding of Hadoop.
