The purpose of this assignment is just to get you set up with the tools of the trade. You are asked to work your way through the Hadoop tutorial and to perform some basic tasks. The rest of Project #3 will involve a much more extravagent application of Hadoop.
This assignment is 20% of Project 3's grade.
As the only goal of this assignment is to "Turn a very small wheel once", you are asked to do it by yourself. You'll have trouble contributing as an equal partner in the next lab, unless you can do something small-ish by yourself, to be sure.
You can log into any ghcXX.ghc.andrew.cmu.edu machine, where XX=01-81, or 86
