Big Data Analytics

Big Data Analytics

From Strategic Planning to Enterprise Integration with Tools, Techniques, NoSQL, and Graph

Nitin K's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 4.0

Big Data Analytics is mostly suitable for business owners & managers thinking to adopt Big Data technology & transform their businesses. The book gives a sound insight on what to consider & how to identify the need for Big Data. I should say the author delivered what he promised in the preface. I gave a 4.0 rating for the fact that if a non-IT person reads the book he/she might have a tough time juggling with some of the terms used. Full Review >

Perl One-Liners

130 Programs That Get Things Done

Nitin K's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 4.0

Perl One-liners is a beautifully written manual, if I can call it like that, that empowers sysadmins with a Swiss Army knife to get dirty jobs done. The author starts with simple one-liners that cater for common tasks like searching, replacing or identifying blocks of texts. He goes ahead mixing various components of regular expression to tackle more complex situations. I enjoyed the way the author started with simple one-liners teaching something out of the beauty of Perl & making the most by the end to the book for admins to write beautiful scripts. Full Review >
