After staying at home to help my wife take care of kids and new born baby for more than 2 months, I finally started my new role at Cloudera as a Customer Operations Engineer.
Here is some information about Cloudera:

The company’s enterprise data hub (EDH) software platform empowers organizations to store, process and analyze all enterprise data, of whatever type, in any volume — creating remarkable cost-efficiencies as well as enabling business transformation.

During my first week, I have been spending most of my time reading and learning all the required knowledge, including Hadoop, Hive, Spark, Sqoop, ZooKeeper, Impala, HCatalog, Avro, Parquet, Sentry & Oozie.
As you can see, there are a hell lot of study I have to do and also Cloudera will be sending me over to the US for further training for about 3-4 weeks. And there will be 3 certificate exams that I have to sit on and pass in order for me to continue working here at Cloudera. So there is some pressure here to push my study.
So far I have enjoyed all those learnings and I hope I can become a Hadoop expert in no time.
Looking forward to start taking new cases in the next 2-3 months.
