Around a month ago I’ve started working with Hadoop, so I decided that I need to read something about it, and chose Hadoop: The Definitive Guide by Tom White that I already had from the Humble Book Bundle. The book contains a lot of information about Hadoop internals and related stack with use cases and examples. And I guess there are too much huge code samples with all boilerplate. And too many pages are like some option – description, there’s already the documentation for things like that.
But overall the book is good. After reading it I feel way more confident with Hadoop.
