Chapter 3. Advanced Data Modeling
So far, we have learned the basic building blocks of HBase schema designing and the CRUD operations over the designed schema. In this chapter, we are going to dive deep and learn the advanced level concepts of HBase, covering the following topics:

- HBase table scans
- Implementing filters
