    I've written a few books - all technical - and there's usually one or two in the pipeline. (I didn't write any of the books in the photo).

    The Big Data Trilogy

    Three free eBooks from Syncfusion's "Succinctly" series.

    Together they form an introduction to Big Data - starting with Hadoop, moving on to Hive and finishing with HBase.

    I have a trilogy of Pluralsight courses covering Big Data too:
