  1. Hi Praveen,

    You are my trainer for Big Data through collabera Tact program few years back. Now i have been working in Big Data Space for a while. Your training was crucial for me to start in Big data.Thank you so much. Currently i am working on some POC for my client. The business objective is Microservice, Event driven, API gateway with Big data implementation. So i am working on some design on Micro service with AWS APi gateway in front to trigger backend service on EMR or spark jobs or any other Big data work loads eihter through any Lamda or cli commands. ( Assuming data is already stored in S3 or HDFS). Any recommendation/suggestion is greatly appreciated.
