I cannot pay it fully by credit card, have to pay part of credit card and part of amazon gift card.
This book does not spend your time unwisely, if you happened to suddenly find yourself on a project involving Hadoop (or its ecosystem components) and you know at least some Talend (if not, I recommend a supplementary book that I also reviewed, Talend Open Studio Cookbook by Packt, too) then this is your book. Print it (if you got an eBook) and place a copy by your desk.
The book nicely covers what I feared complexities of dealing with Hadoop as Hive and Pig (a MR generator, not an animal), which actually turned out to be not true, thanks Talend and its 500+ components that cover 90% of what you need out of Big Data is already there for you to use. To my disbelief Talend actually is a very mature and (in paid variant) fully enterprise ready ETL solution.
The book has 7 chapters, each dedicated to a specific goal that accomplishes an exercise with a particular technology piece.
My favorite is #7: Big Data Architecture and Integration Patterns chapter. The last one, but this is the chapter where you get kind of awarded and start benefiting from the material you ingested.
Chapter 6: Aggregate Data with Pig is alot of fun and showed me a new way of interacting with Pig. It turned to be also a much easier way.
As a side note, I am in love with ETL, in general, I think it has the highest ROI out of all the enterprise tools, yet very much fun to work with and what is best - visually documenting!
Chapter 2: Building your First Big Data Job is like your first swim in deep waters - intimidating, but rewarding, full of uncertainty, but excitement and unforgettable.
All the less relevant topics as setting your training system up are shifted to the appendixes, but I recommend actually starting there if you are new to Cloudera's Hadoop (CDH) VM distribution and/or VMPlayer (served in role of your Virtual Machine).
It seemed to me that a reader does not need ANY prior knowledge of neither Talend nor Hadoop to accomplish the tasks in the book.
One suggestion I have to the author is instead of basing the examples on MySQL which seems to be out of favor by the user community MariaDB is the equivalent substitute that with the release of version 10 going to capture a lot of attention.
Another point is the Hadoop distribution preference, it seems that Hortonworks offers more bells and whistles, but it is a catchup game anyways.
It is a 5 out 5 stars book, thank you Bahaaldine and Packt!
I am new to the world of Big Data, and it is not easy to catch up on all the latest resources out there, and know which is the right one to purchase. This is my third book on the topic, and is far more specific to the world of Hadoop. However, I did find it easy to follow, and I think it has a place for customers looking for a easy to read, quick and easy introduction.
The part I like the most is in the index in the rear of the book, which directs via links to pages that have more information on a given topic. The ebook formatting is excellent, and this small feature has a great benefit for me as a new student to this topic.
If you are looking for a book that is more general about the trends of Big Data, and the various uses of data, this would not be the book. This is more for a entry level student looking for an introduction to actual tools of the trade. Overall, I learned quite a bit from this book, and would recommend it to newbies such as myself.
> The book is comprehensive in explaining the steps required to get started with Talend & Hadoop components from ground-zero i..e procurement, setup, initial configuration etc.
> The Style of Picking up a single topic i.e. Hive and devising a fully functional working example is crisp and clear even if you are complete beginner
> Author has also spent effort in explaining the important Talend Terminologies like Context, Schema, overview of components, Talend Modules for an easy take-off
> The book starts with the brief level of explanation of the Hive, SQOOP, Pig, HDFC etc. and sets the ground before taking a deep dive into the real implementation
> The good thing I like about the book is that, the illustration of the implementation revolves around single scenario about the Tweet feed analysis & hash tags. This offloads the need to go over with the underlying use again and again & get on quickly to Talend and Hadoop
> The idea of highlighting the missing essential regex into the Hive and how to compensate and to have work-around for the same is a good helpful tip
