In this series of introductions and hands-on tutorials, you’ll learn how to work with Big SQL, a component of BigInsights, IBM’s big data platform based on Apache Hadoop. In particular, you’ll use Big SQL to query traditional structured data as well as data derived from social media sites.
The Big SQL on Hadoop tutorial series was developed by Cynthia M. Saracco (firstname.lastname@example.org) with earlier contributions from Carlos Renteria (email@example.com), Raanon Reutlinger (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Uttam Jain.
