Hi readers. It’s been a long time since my last post. Today I’ll give you a review about a book titled Programming MapReduce with Scalding. From the title, we can see that this book is about Big Data technology. MapReduce is a new programming model for large data processing. If you know Hadoop and its part, you’ll understand MapReduce. But this book doesn’t talk about Hadoop much, it mostly talks about large data processing with Scala. Scala is a kind of new programming language which looks like Java.

But my impression about this book is a bit disappointed. Actually, the topic of this book is very interesting. This book is all about building your own private cloud using a tool called OpenStack.

In this post, I’d like to give you some review about a book which I just read. This book is about Object Relational Mapping (ORM) in PHP.
