About

I am an author of IT big data books living in New Zealand, my past titles include Big Data Made Easy and Mastering Apache Spark. My details can be found on LinkedIn and I have a number of presentation sites.

I enjoy learning, writing about new technology and connecting with like minded people. I want to crowd share a new book project to create a beginners big data analytics book.

This book will teach how to build a big data system using basic CentOS Linux machines. The book's outline will be:

  • (1) Introduction
  • (2) Platform implementation
  • (3) Data ingestion
  • (4) Image processing with HIPI
  • (5) Data enrichment / web crawl
  • (6) Data enrichment using HIPI
  • (7) Image classification
  • (8) Talend Spark
  • (9) Crime detection

I expect the book to contain around 350 pages and take up to ten months to produce including editing. I have talked to printers and determined that depending upon volume physical book printing will take two to eight weeks. In order to reduce the cost to interested people I have included world wide shipping.

For small companies and corporates out there I have added the option to get early access to book chapters. That is worth while because it will be a year to release.

Where possible I will concentrate on "real time" processing using Apache Spark and I will investigate the Spark functionality now available in the Talend big data software.

So if you are interested in big data or you would like to learn more then please join me by backing this project. Feel free to connect and ask questions.

Risks and challenges

This is an IT based project that will be used to create a book. My approach is that to be included in the book all examples and code must work. There is a risk that tasks may take longer than expected or issues encountered will delay the project. If that is the case I will provide updates.

I reserve the right to change, reorder or alter chapters as needed. Generally as development progresses if outline changes are needed they will become obvious. I will provide updates to explain my changes.
