The author provides a good introduction to Hadoop in the first three chapters, which includes a discussion on differences between Hadoop and traditional technologies in this space, such as relational databases, as well as a tour of Hadoop building blocks, working with files in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), and the anatomy of a MapReduce program. The next three chapters contain the bulk of the text, which focuses on writing MapReduce programs, and includes segments on chaining MapReduce jobs, joining data from different sources, creating a Bloom filter, and monitoring, debugging, and tuning.Read more ›
