muSOAing for 9/4/13 – Good book on Hive

Instant Apache Hive Essentials How-to by Darren Lee

Finally a well rounded and well grounded book on Hive. Everyone thinks that HQL is the beginning an end of Hive, without realizing that there is so much more to this interesting technology. Darren has finally come out with this much needed work that explores all the other key aspects of Hive such as it’s storage formats and how they are essential for running efficient map/reduce. The more advanced features such as UDFs. The ability to interact with Hive using non-interactive mechanisms like drivers, thrift server etc. I personally found this book to be very useful and eye opening eventough I have been working with Hive for the past two years. I give this work a two thumbs up.
