Hi all,

As the title of this thread suggests, presently I am working as a Java professional with over 2.5 years of experience and having exposure of quite a few frameworks which includes Struts & Hibernate, Play Framework, Android, etc.

Looking at the market, I can see that Hadoop and Big Data technology are growing very fast and having lots of market demands also. I have never hesitated in learning new technologies and hence willing to move into Cloud computing technologies. Without any working experience, its really difficult to get into these jobs. Hence need some inputs on how to change the domain from Java frameworks to cloud computing.

Since the language used for Hadoop or some other cloud computing technologies is also java, hence I feel that I have an outside chance with fingers crossed. Kindly let me know how to make my dream fulfilled

I'd suggest self taught learning in these frameworks too. As you mentioned in other thread, Hadoop(and its related ecosystem) is core java, so you can quickly come upto speed on it. However, big data analytics spans much further than setting frameworks up and you need to have solid fundamentals on it - there are various MOOCs that provide this. As for cloud, If you are looking to deploy java applications, it is almost a no-brainer these days but setting up cloud environments is a different thing. Devops in java community is still in infancy as compared to the ruby folks.
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
