Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book makes a lot of assumptions and doesn't give a lot of setup instruction. For instance, you don't find out that the author is assuming you are using CDH3 until chapter 2. Or, the author makes the assumption that you have a Microsoft SQL Server instance living on a seperate box from your own. Or worse, the assumption that the reader is utilizing a cluster that has at least 4 machines and is setup with 2 namenodes. Outside of this glaring problem with assumptions, the subject matter that is present is top notch if you can work through the short-comings

This book serves an important purpose that's often overlooked by most other publishers. Programming is not a science. Programming is a craft. For people to learn programming, they need to work on real projects. This book helps the programmer to get up and running without having to go through a lengthy documentation or highfalutin book. You don't have to look like a Hadoop pro to be a good programmer, even on big data projects that leverage Hadoop. You have to start coding and tinkering and this book helps you do that.

Format: Paperback
'Hadoop Real-World Solutions Cookbook' by Jonathon R. Owens, Brian Femiano and Jon Lentz is another fine cookbook serving up recipes for working with Hadoop. The book has 10 different chapters dealing with the basics such as setting up Hadoop, getting data into and out of Hadoop and working with HDFS and then moving on to more advanced topics such as joining data, using Pig and Hive and analyzing large amounts of data.

You not only given lessons solely about Hadoop, but you also get introduced to other packages such as Giraph, Mahout and Accumulo and how to integrate these with Hadoop.

This is definitely a book that will be within easy reach and used heavily for reference for quite some time. If you're working with Hadoop for anything and you want quick answers on how to do things, give this book a close look.
