 This video has a hands-on demonstration of how to check out the source code
 repositories and build them, then run the maven archetype command
 to generate a new Apache Apex project, populate the project with Java source files
 for a new application, and finally, build and run the application -- all on a
 virtual machine running Linux with Apache Hadoop installed.

+Map-Reduce model is essential and why operability is critically important. It continues
+with a discussion of the programming model, the various components of a running application

+End-to-end _Exactly-Once_ with Apache Apex</a>
+Details how Apache Apex can work in conjunction with transactional systems to provide
+_exactly-once_ semantics. A simple example of reading data from a Kafka topic and writing
+processed results to a SQL database is discussed along with the relevant operators
+(already provided in the Apex Malhar library) and the importance of idempotency.
