      Comments about oreilly Introduction to Big Data:

      I would be considered an absolute beginner in this topic so probably not a good judge of what was left out, however, I found the topics that are covered to be, for the most part, clearly stated as to what each tool is (Hadoop, key/value databases, document oriented databases, etc.) and when they are best used or not used. There were some points within topics where I felt wanting more disclosure to feel I comprehended what was covered, but that was rare. I felt the pace was excellent and the material was kept interesting and moving throughout. Overall I feel this was a very good addition to my IT library.

            A wide but shallow overview of Big Data and NoSQL techs

            Comments about oreilly Introduction to Big Data:

            This set of videos is a good introduction to Big Data & NoSQL technologies.
            In my opinion it is a bit too wide and shallow, and should include less subjects and more depth.

            Hadoop, HDFS, Hive, Pig and HBase are covered rather in depth,
            But other subjects (Cassandra, Spark, Storm, etc.) are skimmed through and do not provide enough substance.

            I also felt the course could use better organization and re-ordering of videos. (e.g. NoSQL videos seem a bit out of place)

            Still, as it is supposed to be an introduction, it does a good job. and can be helpful for any Dev or Ops professional who would like to get a broad overview of the Big Data field.

              Comments about oreilly Introduction to Big Data:

              the clear separation of the extensive amount of tools used with Big Data makes the books a perfect reference when selecting the toolset and start projecting the tasks ahead.
              It helped me a big deal in choosing the right first steps, and thus limiting big correction work in later stages.
