      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Very Good book to get started on Hadoop

    I started with the Hadoop Definitive Guide but found it a bit difficult with getting started on Hadoop. A friend recommended me to start with this book first and then move on to Hadoop Definitive Guide. I am currently reading this book and find it really useful to not only understand complex topics like map reduce but also putting it in practice. I recommend it for people who are planning to learn hadoop on their own.
