Understanding a chunk of new technology that solves lots of new problems isn't always so simple. Getting a handle on Hadoop is straightforward, though, because there's a great introductory book: Hadoop: The Definitive Guide, by Tom White. I liked this book's first edition, and the second is even better: clear, complete, and compelling.
Finally reading #hadoop book by @tom_e_white. Nice work Tom! Should make it required reading for all #yhoo engineers!
