Has anybody done a Hadoop certification?

I see that Cloudera and Hortonworks are the two major vendors. I am a java developer. Which certification should I chose?

What are the options/resources available?

Both are valid in the market. I did Cloudera Certification, don't know the full details of Hortonworks.

Hi,

As well, I am a Java Developer with no experience in Hadoop. As I would like to switch to Hadoop Developement. I plan to get the Hadoop certification.


I found three vendors and four certification for developers:

Cloudera
a) Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop (CCDH) - CCD-410 => http://cloudera.com/content/cloudera/en/training/certification/ccdh/prep.html

Hortonworks
b)HDP Certified Developer (HDCDP) => http://hortonworks.com/training/class/hdp-certified-developer-hdpcd-exam/
c) Hortonworks Certified Apache Hadoop Java Developer => http://hortonworks.com/training/hadoop-2-0-javadeveloper-certification-2/

MapR
d) MCHD - MapR Certified Hadoop Developer => https://www.mapr.com/node/8151


I have a few questions:
  • Which is the vendor certification more worthwhile?
  • Which do you think is the right certification for me? As I am a Java Dev, I thought that the more suitable certification for me is the "Hortonworks Certified Apache Hadoop Java Developer".
  • And I appreciate any feedback from Hadoop devs.


  • Thanks,

    Hi,

    I cleared CCDH in 2012 and HDCDP this year. In my opinion CCDH tests your skills in much detail . I personally give more weight to the CCDH.

    Hi @Vijaypal,

    From your experience, do you think a CCDH helps a lot to switch from Java Dev to a Hadoop Dev position? I would start to prepare de CCDH from almost zero-level of Hadoop knowledge.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Hi VijayPal,

    Any sample set of question you referred for CCDH4? I am planning to buy dummy question bank from HadoopExam.com.

    Currently i am reading Definative Guide 4th Edition.

    Please comment.
