Experience and background in software development and administration.
This course is unique in that it teaches the best practices and caveats of designing modern concurrent Big Data systems. ZooKeeper is an ideal tool to understand and practice the theory, and to reason about system performance, fault tolerance, and stability.
ZooKeeper is the defacto standard for coordinating multiple components in distributed systems. In this class, we will learn ZooKeeper architecture, design, and implementation. Then we will go through the standard ZooKeeper design patterns and their implementation.
In recent year, most of the design work with ZooKeeper is done through Curator. Curator makes the implementation of the design patterns – called recipes – much easier and more robust. We will work with Elections (such as Leader Latch and Leader Election), Locks, Barriers, and more.
The course includes a balance of theory and lab work.
This course is designed for Developers, administrators, architects.
In this course, participants will:
- Be able to build scalable, high performant systems
- Recognize common design patterns in building Big Data concurrent implementations
- Code them with the help of ZooKeeper
