    Description

    Hadoop In Action by Chuck Lam takes an insightful look at using Apache Hadoop and the MapReduce framework along with extraction of logical information from volumes of data.

    Summary Of The Book

    Hadoop In Action by Chuck Lam deals with Apache Hadoop and its particular features. This is a NoSQL application framework. It mainly runs on frameworks that are distributed. The book positions Apache Hadoop as a replacement for traditional database applications. Hadoop In Action teaches the fundamentals of Hadoop to readers and explains its usage along with delineated MapReduce programs and their writing. This book will be quite helpful for architects, project managers and programmers and any individual processing large volumes of data offline. This book details all the steps involved, starting from obtaining Hadoop to cluster settings and writing programs that analyse data.

    Hadoop In Action makes the basics of MapReduce and Hadoop significantly easier for readers. The default installation for Hadoop is applied to tasks that are quite easy to understand. These include analysis of word frequency changes across document bodies. The book also takes a look at concepts like using Hadoop for data analysis, framework components and examples of using Hadoop. Readers are also presented various programming practices and patterns of design. The complicated MapReduce is simplified for readers and all levers and knobs are carefully delineated. Readers will be able to eventually write programs within the MapReduce framework and use Hadoop successfully with this book.

    Readers must be thorough with the basic concepts of Java and have an understanding of statistics in order to make full use of this book. Hadoop In Action demonstrates extraction of logical information from data bundles and code writing methodology as well. There are various basic exercises provided in the book that can be helpful for both professionals and beginners.

    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.

    Good for Intermediaries

    I would not recommend this book for beginners coz the language is a bit hard to understand and also it do not start or you can say cover all the basic in a very good way as done in Hadoop The definitive Guide. I would also recommend for people who want to learn Hadoop to watch Hadoop videos on youtube channel 'Hadoop tutorial' i found them to be good enough to understand all the basic concept and then you can pick up the book at your pace also check cloudera, udacity, apache.org and bigdata u...

    Nevertheless , for Bigdata and hadoop newbies this is must possess book to start on the simple level ,rather than picking some c...
