This course is a general overview of the Apache Pig Framework. It will provide an introduction to the structure and methodologies of Apache Pig and an overview of Pig Latin, the Language of Apache Pig. No prior knowledge of Pig or Pig Latin is assumed, but it may be helpful to be familiar with one other programming language, such as python. This course will include interactive tutorials for processing and aggregating data with Apache Pig, it will cover many of the functionality that is built into the language as well as how to incorporate user defined functions into pig scripts to further increase their functionality. In the end you should be able to read and understand pig code and write your own scripts that you can implement in the interactive grunt shell or directly from the command line.
