Our first lab will start on Tuesday in Week 1. If your OS is Windows, you will need to use the virtual machine (VirtualBox or VMware). The VM image can be downloaded at:
Please download the image asap and let me know if there is any problem with downloading the image. Another option is that you can download the Ubuntu OS and VirtualBox from the official website, and then install Ubuntu 22.04 in VirtualBox by yourself.
Please watch out if you have enough memory in your host OS. You can decrease the memory allocated to the VM from 8G to 4G. Otherwise, you may encounter some errors.
If your OS is Linux or Mac, you can install and configure Hadoop on your own laptop directly by following the lab instructions.
Dear COMP9313 Students,
Welcome to COMP9313! Please see " Course Outline " in the left panel .
The course will still be delivered both online and offline in T2. I hope that you will enjoy the course this term.
Our first lecture is on Tuesday in Week 1. Note that the first lab also starts in Week 1. You will need to set up the Hadoop working environment either using a virtual machine or on your own laptop in the first lab.
I look forward to seeing you all soon.
