Getting Started With Hadoop

Using the library in particular you’ll want to get your hands on a jargon laden java machine. If you’re lucky enough to have one of those fancypants servers you’ll probably be well on your way to your next big thing. If you’re still in the dark ages you’ll have to be a little more creative.

Lastly, you’ll need to set a password for the VM.
