I'll be chastised and have mean things said about me for this.
Get some experience in IT before you start looking at Hadoop. My reasoning
is this: If you don't know how to develop real applications in a
Non-Hadoop world, you'll struggle a lot to develop with Hadoop.
Asking what "things you need to know in compulsory" is like saying you want
to "learn computers" -- totally worthless! Find a problem to solve and
seek to learn the tools you need to solve your problem. Otherwise, your
learning is un-applied and somewhat useless.
Picture a recent acting school graduate how to direct the next Star Wars
movie. It's almost like that.
