Format: Paperback
The writing quality of this book is below the standards of a typical web development tutorial and it really could have used a good editor. The authors may be fluent in the English language, but that doesn't mean they know how to write clearly. I can almost hear their spoken word accents. The unnecessarily wordy and verbose presentation casts doubt on their knowledge and the quality of the material. After reading the first few chapters I'm not sure if I'm willing to work hard enough to get through the rest of it.

This book contains lots of helpful HBase related information, but most of this you can find in other books. Based on the chapters in this book, I really expected to find some time-tested information on how to do practical data modeling in HBase. I was sorely disappointed.

First of all, I'll start by saying that this book is a bit of a confused mashup between HBase and Apache Phoenix. At the very least the book should have Phoenix mentioned in its title, since almost every interaction in the book with HBase is actually being done through Phoenix. The author seems to assume that Phoenix is merely a SQL layer over HBase and that other than providing a SQL-like API, it doesn't change the essence of how you work with HBase. He doesn't even mention, when discussing bulk-loading into HBase, that if you don't bulk-load through phoenix, phoenix indexes won't get updated.

That many-to-many relationships discussion in the Advanced Patterns for Data Modeling is best described as irritating. Two of the provided examples use standard DDI concepts to denormalize the data. However, there is no discussion about how to get this data out once it's in. Certainly it can't be done with phoenix, maybe that's why the author provided no examples. So what happened to initial discussion about phoenix as the suggested way of accessing all your HBbase data? Another example uses "index tables", which are actually junction tables, which as it is modelled would probably force any query to join the data in the index table with the data in the users table, a practice which the author previously stated was poor design.

This wasn't what I expected. It's a superficial overview of Hbase, you can get the same by going directly to the source. This is for the novice, something that can be read in a day to get a quick overview of HBase. The title, 'Design patterns' imply's much more.

This book is a good, easy introduction into designing for HBase and gets you up to speed quickly. The book flowed well but it is not so much a reference book as much as almost an interactive course. If you can imagine yourself in a class, with HBase design principles being presented in an conversational, interactive style followed by lab work, that is quite bit what this book is like. Subsequently I found the book very easy to read but for the most part it covered the important or key areas of HBase design. Again, this is more of an introduction to HBase design but it is certainly a decent foundation.
I also thought it interesting that the author presented a number of tools and software packages for the reader to use to help in the lab work. Some of these are quite interesting in themselves like Kiji and Apache Phoenix.
There was also some practical discussion of deployment aspects like Amazon costs and using older versions of Linux for better HBase support.
This book doesn't cover HBase in detail but is more geared into some common table design patterns.
There is also a good practical discussion of storing large files in HBase as well as methods to import data and their associated performance.
This book is good for someone already familiar with HBase and wants a more practical guide to table design and considerations as well as for someone that is new to HBase but is familiar with relational design.

If you are newbie to HBase and are looking for a detailed treatise on HBase then this may not be the book for you. But then HBase is an Apache open source project part of the Hadoop distribution and there are enough online sources to find introductory type of documentation already for this. What this book does quite well is provide programming design patterns that help both seasoned database programmers and Hadoop programmers alike with effective techniques to implement solutions using HBase. The book has easy to follow code examples and also provides an online portal to interact with the authors with questions and issues.

The Learning Bootstrap book provides a very gentle but complete introduction to one of the most used frameworks nowadays to make websites. I like the style of products made with Bootstrap. I wanted to know how to use this framework and this book helped me a lot. It is full of examples that shows the most important characteristics of Bootstrap as well as how to customize it to impose your personal touch. I really enjoyed reading this book
