I am proud to announce my latestÂ series of screencastsÂ on Hadoop MapReduce. Itâ€™s published again by the good people atÂ Pragmatic Programmers. Â These screencasts are the best way for a beginner to learn about Hadoop, unless they’re sitting in my class at Cloudera University.
Here’s few links to get started after you’ve purchased the screencasts:
First, you want a way to run Hadoop, MapReduce and Eclipse. Â There is a virtual machine that is set up and running with everything you need. Â I have a mini-screencast showing how to use Eclipse and debug things.
Finally, you’ll need the dataset for the second episode. Â It uses the Nasdaq daily stock pricesÂ from InfoChimps.
The focus of the screencast isn’t administration and installation. Â This screencast is focused on the developer side of things. Â The source code is written to run on the Cloudera QuickStart VM out of the box.
