Two beautilful Hadhoop books

Hadoop has become "de-facto" standard for industrial parallel processing. Congrats to Doug who inspired and worked on this project since the very beginning.

Recently, I reviewed two beautiful books that I would suggest for your education
  • Data-Intensive Text Processing with MapReduce which focuses on how to think and design algorithms in "MapReduce", with an emphasis on text processing algorithms common in natural language processing, information retrieval, and machine learning.
  • Hadoop: The Definitive Guide with an emphasis on how to program a large hadoop cluster, and with real examples of industrial use in large organizations such as Last.Fm, Facebook and other.
