Thank you to everyone who responded to this thread. I got couple of good moves and got some good online courses to explore from to get some fundamental understanding of the things.

Thanks

You might want to consider the Hadoop course on udacity.com.  I think it provides a decent foundation to Hadoop/MapReduce with a focus on Python (using the streaming API like Sebastiano mentions).

Hi Users,
I am new to big data world and was in process of reading some material of writing mapreduce using Python.

Any links or pointers in that direction will be really helpful.
