Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-4740) Awkward wording in "Analyzing the Yelp Academic Dataset"

Paul Rogers created DRILL-4740:

             Summary: Awkward wording in "Analyzing the Yelp Academic Dataset"
                 Key: DRILL-4740
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4740
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Paul Rogers
            Priority: Minor

Consider the topic paragraph for the Yelp sample data page: http://drill.apache.org/docs/analyzing-the-yelp-academic-dataset/

It could use a bit of TLC. For example:

"Apache Drill is one of the fastest growing open source projects, with the community making
rapid progress with monthly releases The key difference is Drill’s agility and flexibility."

This is a non-sequiter. The speed and agility of the software does not drive the monthly releases.
Can we reword it to say that Drill’s speed and agility makes it a popular project? And that
many people work hard to make it better with monthly releases? Something like that...

(Although, at present, releases have dropped to bi-monthly or quarterly...)


"Along with meeting the table stakes for SQL-on-Hadoop, which is to achieve low latency performance
at scale, …"

Seems two problems.

1. What does it mean “meeting the table stakes”? Very unclear.
2. This is a run-on sentence that tries to say multiple thoughts in a single sentence and
should be rewritten.

Then, there is redundancy:

"...Drill allows users to analyze the data without any ETL or up-front schema definitions.
… Drill, has a “no schema” approach…"

I’m sure this paragraph was written quickly early on, but it could certainly be improved
a bit…
