I am exploring the Big Data field. My academic research interests include exploring the relation between social media and it's impact on the sales of a firm. I am trying to setup a cluster and see if big data can help me analyze the data that I can gather from social media like twitter, Facebook to see if a trend exists.
I am beginning to read about Hadoop, Data Modeling etc. I have used Linux as my only personal operating system on desktop and laptops for over a decade. I am comfortable tinkering the kernel, applying patches and if I have time I also compile the individual Linux applications packages.
I would love to learn about recent trend in Big Data Analytics.
