The takeaway should be an example stack you can use to jumpstart your application, and a standard to which you should hold other stacks. Agile Big Data Processing The first step to building analytics applications is to plumb your application from end to end: from collecting raw data to displaying something on the user’s screen (see Figure 3-1). This is important, because complexity can increase fast, and you need user feedback plugged into the process from the start, lest you start iterating without feedback (also known as the death spiral).

Avro allows complex data structures, it includes a schema with each file, and it has support in Apache Pig. Installing Avro is easy, and it requires no external service to run. 24 | Chapter 2: Data We’ll define a single, simple Avro schema for an email document as defined in RFC-5322. It is well and good to define a schema up front, but in practice, much pro‐ cessing will be required to extract all the entities in that schema. So our initial schema might look very simple, like this: { "type":"record", "name":"RawEmail", "fields": [ { "name":"thread_id", "type":["string", "null"], "doc":"" }, { "name":"raw_email", "type": ["string", "null"] } ] } We might extract only a thread_id as a unique identifier, and then store the entire raw email string in a field on its own.

However, relational structure does have benefits. We can see what time users send emails very easily with a simple select/group by/order query: select senderid as id, hour(messagedt) as sent_hour, count(*) from messages where senderid=511 group by senderid, m_hour order by senderid, m_hour; which results in this simple table: +----------+--------+----------+ | senderid | m_hour | count(*) | +----------+--------+----------+ | 1 | 0 | 4 | | 1 | 1 | 3 | | 1 | 3 | 2 | | 1 | 5 | 1 | | 1 | 8 | 3 | | 1 | 9 | 1 | | 1 | 10 | 5 | | 1 | 11 | 2 | | 1 | 12 | 2 | | 1 | 14 | 1 | | 1 | 15 | 5 | | 1 | 16 | 4 | | 1 | 17 | 1 | | 1 | 19 | 1 | | 1 | 20 | 1 | | 1 | 21 | 1 | | 1 | 22 | 1 | | 1 | 23 | 1 | +----------+--------+----------+ Relational databases split data up into tables according to its structure and precompute indexes for operating between these tables.
