Excellent Hadoop reference,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hadoop: The Definitive Guide (Paperback)
This book sits next to my laptop as my Hadoop reference guide/bible. Covering installation, administration and development, this is my go to resource for understanding Hadoop as a relatively new (to me) technology. Agreed that the APIs are not up to date, that is unavoidable for a book on emerging technology. The chapter on Pig alone is worth buying this book, but I've gotten extensive use out of nearly the entire book.
