"Friends, we would like to tell you about an open access book on Hadoop, called "Hadoop illuminated." You can find it here.
We want to make learning about Hadoop and its ecosystem fun and engaging. The book is accompanied by its project on GitHub. The book is work in progress, we consider it in alpha stage. We will be updating and adding to it. Your feedback is welcome.
1.1. About "Hadoop illuminated"
This book is our experiment in making Hadoop knowledge available to the open source community. The book is freely available, and its code is open source.
We want this book to serve as an introduction, as a cookbook, and in later parts as an advanced manual.
"Hadoop illuminated" is work in progress. Techniques get added, chapters added and updated. We appreciate your feedback. You can follow it on Twitter, discuss it in on Google Groups, or send your feedback to our emails.
Hadoop is all the rage, right? Maybe this weBook will help you towards wrapping your head around it (or not, but the price is just right anyway...)
