About This Module
This module introduces data engineers and data analysts to the Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) service. It introduces basic concepts, and then provides a choice to continue with a Data Engineer track, which shows how to create and tune important entities within CDW, or with a Data Analyst track, which shows how to access tables and views using different interface methods.
This module includes 45 minutes of video content. Note: In order to complete the hands-on exercises for this course, students must have access to CDW through their organization.
