Pig for wrangling Bigdata

Taught by a team which includes 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts. This team has decades of practical experience in working with large-scale data processing jobs.

Pig is aptly named, it is omnivorous, will consume any data that you throw at it and bring home the bacon!

Let's parse that

omnivorous: Pig works with unstructured data. It has many operations which are very SQL-like but Pig can perform these operations on data sets which have no fixed schema. Pig is great at wrestling data into a form which is clean and can be stored in a data warehouse for reporting and analysis.

bring home the bacon: Pig allows you to transform data in a way that makes is structured, predictable and useful, ready for consumption.
