Level:  Technical - Intermediate

HBase allows you to build big data applications for scaling, but with this comes some different ways of implementing applications compared to developing with traditional relational databases. For example, in HBase you cannot do transactions spanning multiple tables. In this session, you will learn how, in some cases, to work around to implement transactions using HBase. We will explore real-world big data problems and talk about architectures, APIs, and key parts of HBase for developing efficient big data applications to solve these problems. We will go through some best practices and how to apply them, using demos and code.
