Learning Hadoop 2, the video course I’ve spent the last few months recording, is finally available for sale on the Packt Publishing website. Soon it will be on O’reilly’s site as well.
This is an introduction to the Hadoop ecosystem and all its components, including HDFS, MapReduce, performing ETL functions with Pig, and data warehousing with Hive. We also go over data import with tools like Flume and Sqoop.
I’m obviously biased, but I really believe this is the best introduction to working with Hadoop available. The goal was to make something that anyone with a passing knowledge of linux could use, and I think we nailed it.
