Self-Paced HDInsight Training

Ashish Thapliyal introduces three EdX courses on HDInsight:

Implementing Real-Time Analysis with Hadoop in Azure HDInsight

Start course

In this four week course, you’ll learn how to implement low-latency and streaming Big Data solutions using Hadoop technologies like HBase, Storm, and Spark on Microsoft Azure HDInsight.

Course Syllabus

Use HBase to implement low-latency NoSQL data stores.
Use Storm to implement real-time streaming analytics solutions.
Use Spark for high-performance interactive data analysis.

These are free courses on EdX.  I personally wouldn’t bother getting the certificate, but hey, it’s your money.
