On Feb 9, 2014 Sumit Bisht wrote: Practical, Precise and Persistant towards finding the right question to be asked
This book specifies what questions to be asked, factors to understand and take account of before proceeding towards solving any big data problem as the tools and algorithms are plentiful but a lot of failed efforts point towards lesser research on selecting a data analysis strategy. Definitely a read and a companion for reaffirmation for people interested towards solving and improving big data challenges. Full Review >

Java EE 7 Essentials

Java EE 7 Essentials

Sumit's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 5.0

On Nov 29, 2013 Sumit Bisht wrote: Current goto resource for Java EE 7
This is the default resource for enterprise java developers outside the specification manual. What separates it from other such enterprise java books is that it keeps the reader's focus on the problem in hand and does not attempts to provide an application server specific solution. It is also helpful to those who are just coming into JavaEE as it provides the information grounds up and not just only the new changes. A word of advice though; I would recommend that the reader also have an internet connection with resources while developing with this book to find and understand the nuances while building a JavaEE application with it as this book covers most enterprise libraries, but by no means attempts to be a comprehensive and bulky manual.
