XCDD 1002 - Data Analyst Training: Using Pig and Hive

Apache Hive is Hadoop's data warehouse infrastructure and it makes multi-structured data accessible to analysts, database administrators, and others without Java programming expertise. Hive and Pig allows the management and manipulation of data in a Hadoop cluster without Java programming experience. Apache Pig applies the fundamentals of familiar scripting languages to the Hadoop cluster. Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. In this hands-on course, students learn how Apache Pig and Apache Hive enable data transformations and analyses via filters, joins, and user-defined functions. Participants learn how to apply data analytics and business intelligence skills to big data, including how to access, manipulate, and analyze complex data sets using SQL and other scripting languages. Class textbook included in course fee. Textbooks distributed in first course meeting. Prerequisites: Essentials for Apache Hadoop class or equivalent experience.

Learn about the essential facilitation aptitudes; good meeting practices; a variety of listening skills including ability to paraphrase; stack a conversation; draw people out; balance participation; and make space for more reticent group members.

XBZ 2303 - Resolving Workplace Conflict

Today's business environment presents new and growing challenges forcing organizations to continually increase productivity, improve quality, shorten cycle time, and reduce costs. Survey after survey confirms that people are working longer and harder at jobs that are more complex and have a wider range of responsibilities. At the same time, the way people work and communicate with one another is changing, creating added stress and complexity. The homogenous, single-function, co-located group is being replaced by dispersed, cross-functional teams with diverse areas of expertise. An unfortunate but natural by-product of these challenges is conflict. While conflict can lead to discoveries such as new ideas and innovative breakthroughs, it can, if allowed to escalate, result in damage to critical working relationships. This course teaches leaders how to recognize the signs of escalating conflict and take appropriate action to minimize damage. Leaders are introduced to two resolution tactics-coach and mediate-and practice using the Interaction Essentials as they coach an associate to resolve a conflict.
