This course is designed to aid programmers who are working with IBM's InfoSphere BigInsights. Writing programs that extract data from unstructured text can be a daunting task. You will learn how to create annotators through the use of IBM's Annotation Query Language (AQL). Analyzing data using Apache's Hadoop normally requires that MapReduce programs be written. You will learn how to use Jaql to create high level programs that are decomposed into Hadoop MapReduce programs. People familiar with the Hadoop technology are aware of other open source products that are used in this environment. This course will give you a foundation to program using the Apache Pig language. There is also overview of ZooKeeper, HBase, and Hive. One of the capabilities of the BigInsights Web Console is the ability to simplify the invocation of Hadoop applications. This course shows how to publish a text analytics application from the BigInsights development environment to a BigInsights server.
