What is Course Pre-Requisite?
Although this course is open to everyone, basic familiarity with unix commands(listing files, opening and editing files etc) will be good to have. 

I have a lot of data, but how do I know if it's "Big Data"?
Although I would encourage you to take up this one day course and have a better understanding, but to answer your question, if your data is well-structured(fits a schema) and real time querying is of paramount importance, you can use relational databases. Nowadays, any data which is somewhat difficult to comprehend, and needs data mining can be classified as "big data".

How much Hands-on is involved?
We will be setting up Hadoop, doing hands on on HDFS, and then running a Map Reduce job on Hadoop. We will also be doing a hands on exercise on Hive.
