Continuing with our ‘let’s learn something new’ summer camp from last year, this year we focus on learning Hadoop. We installed Virtual Box, and the Cloudera quickstart engine, and used the first tutorial as our “hello World” program option, with various forms of success. 8GB of RAM and 7GB of RAM associated with the VB is definitely a recommended start to not twiddle fingers for Cloudera to respond.
