Subject Re: Yahoo Hadoop Tutorial with new APIs?
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2012 15:05:13 GMT
I am happy to announce that I was able to get the license on the Yahoo! Hadoop tutorial updated
from Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License to Apache 2.0.  I have filed HADOOP-8477
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8477> to pull the tutorial into the Hadoop
project, and to update it accordingly.  I am going to be very busy the next little while and
I am hoping that those in the community that want this can help drive it and possibly break
it down into subtasks to get the tutorial up to date.  I am very happy to help out, but like
I said it may be a while before I am able to do much on this.

 Ok, Robert, I will be waiting for you then. There are many folks that use this tutorial,
so I think this a good effort in favor of the Hadoop community.It would be nice
 if Yahoo! donate this work, because, I have some ideas behind this, for example: to release
a Spanish version of the tutorial.
 Regards and best wishes

 That is a great idea to be able to update the tutorial, especially if the community is interested
in helping to do so.  We are looking into the best way to do this.  The idea right now is
to donate this to the Hadoop project so that the community can keep it up to date, but we
need some time to jump through all of the corporate hoops to get this to happen.  We have
a lot going on right now, so if you don't see any progress on this please feel free to ping
me and bug me about it.

Hello Marcos

  Yes , Yahoo tutorials are pretty old but still they explain the concepts of Map Reduce ,
HDFS beautifully. The way in which tutorials have been defined into sub sections , each builing
on previous one is awesome. I remember when i started i was digged in there for many days.
The tutorials are lagging now from new API point of view.

  Lets have some documentation session one day , I would love to Volunteer to update those
tutorials if people at Yahoo take input from outside world :)

 Subject: Yahoo Hadoop Tutorial with new APIs?

 Regards to all the list.
  There are many people that use the Hadoop Tutorial released by Yahoo at http://developer.yahoo.com/hadoop/tutorial/
 The main issue here is that, this tutorial is written with the old APIs? (Hadoop 0.18 I think).
  Is there a project for update this tutorial to the new APIs? to Hadoop 1.0.2 or YARN (Hadoop

  Best wishes
