While you’re anxiously awaiting, we thought we’d give you some pointers to some resources so that you can experiment and play. After all, that’s what a Sandbox is all about, right?

Language Manuals

First, if you’re looking to expand your skills, take a look at Hive Language Manual, the Pig Tutorial on the Apache Foundation website, and Command Line Interface information on HCatalog project incubator site.

Use Hive to SQLize

Feeling a bit more advanced? Take a look at Russell Jurney’s blog posts, HOWTO use Hive to SQLize your own Tweets Part 1, and HOWTO use Hive to SQLize your own Tweets Part 1.

Pull In Your Own Data

You have datasets. We know you want to put them in Hadoop. It’s easy. You can import your own data into the Sandbox the same way you imported data sets in the tutorials.

Looking for other interesting data sets? There are many interesting sets for you:

In the meantime, we’re working hard to bring you new and interesting tutorials. We’d love to see what you’ve done. Show us your demos and tutorials — who knows, there might be one of the coveted stuff elephants in your future!
