Hadoop: The Definitive Guide
Discover how Apache Hadoop can unleash the power of your data. This comprehensive resource shows you how to build and maintain reliable, scalable, distributed systems with the Hadoop framework an open source implementation of MapReduce, the algorithm on which Google built its empire. Programmers will find details for analyzing datasets of any size, and administrators will...more
Ако я сравня с "Hadoop Pro", която въобще не ми беше полезна, тази трябва да има 5 звездички. Въпреки това има известни пропуски, примерно няма информация за Hive, а тази за HBase e ограничена.
За целите на дипломната ми работа и първоначално запознаване с технологията, книгата е повече от достатъчна, а и още няма алтернатива.
I'll recommend this book for all developers, who want to learn about Hadoop, it's usage and programming for it
However, because the ambition of the author is to put all into one book, you might feel overwhelmed with many details under the hood. It should be better you just read the int ...more
Here is the way I recommend reading it: Read through the first two chapters including the tutorial walk through with the weather examples, then jump ahead and read the introduction for each of the related projects Pig (chapter 11), Hive (12), HBase (13), Zookeeper (14), Sqoop (15). Then read the case studies in the last chapter. Then go back and read about Hadoop in ...more
2nd Chapter - MapReduce:
>A good point to start different components of MapReduce program, Mapper, Reducer and all...
>Got a good dataset(weather dataset from NCDC) to play around...
>We can use Cloudera's distribution CDH4 for practicing the programs
7th Chapter - MapReduce Types and Formats:
Of course hadoop API evolves pretty fast, but I was able with minor changes to launch most of code samples.
Very handy, especially provides guidance to use local/dev mode to start immediate implementation of M/R stuff
I actually read 1st edition as well, but I found many new & useful additions in new edition
Some of the writing was a bit wonky, but overall really good.
Goodreads is hiring!
