    One thought on “Programming Pig”

    1. A good programming book exposes me to many of the fundamentals of the language. A great programming book has me feeling ready to go do something in that language. This was a good programming book and nothing more.

    2. Another book I used in preparation for my Hadoop talk. I liked the examples, but found some of the configuration descriptions to be a bit lacking.Still recommend the book, since once you get past configuration issues, the examples are helpful.

    3. A nice introduction into Pig, a dataflow scripting language for Hadoop. Since Pig is being actively developed, some information is already outdated, but it gives enough overview about what Pig is about.
