FAQ
Hi all,

I have been working with Hadoop core, Hadoop HDFS and Hadoop MapReduce for the past 8 months.

Now I want to learn other projects under Apache Hadoop such as Pig, Hive, HBase ...

Can you suggest me a learning path to learn about the Hadoop Eco-System in a structured manner?
I am confused between so many alternatives such as
Hive vs Jaql vs Pig
HBase vs Hypertable vs Cassandra
And many other projects which are similar to each other.

Thanks in advance,
Varad

    Are you learning for the sake of experimenting or are there functional requirements driving you to dive into this space?

    *If you are learning for the sake of adding new tools to your portfolio: Look into high level overviews of each of the projects and review architecture solutions that use them. Focus on how they interact and target ones that peak your curiosity the most.

    *If you are learning the ecosystem to fulfill some customer requirements then just learn the pieces as you need them. Compare the high level differences between the sub projects and let the requirements drive which pieces you focus on.

    There are plenty of training videos out there (for free) that go over quite a few of the pieces. I recently came across https://www.db2university.com/courses/auth/openid/login.php which has a basic set of reference materials that reviews a few of the sub projects within the eco system with included labs. Yahoo developer network and Cloudera also have some great resources as well.

    Any one of us could point you in a certain direction but it is all a matter of opinion. Compare your needs with each of the sub projects and that should filter the list down to a manageable size.
