Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Big Data Zone (July 4 to July 11). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Designing a Data Architecture to Support both Fast and Big Data

In this post, I will illustrate how I envision the corporate architecture that will enable companies to achieve the data dream that integrates Fast and Big.

2. Python's Popularity in Universities and other Big Data Links from Somewhere Else

Some data writings worth reading from Freakonometrics.

3. R: Order by Data Frame Column and Take Top 10 Rows

I’ve been doing some ad-hoc analysis of the Neo4j London meetup group using R and Neo4j and having worked out how to group by certain keys the next step was to order the rows of the data frame.

4. Overwhelmed by the Volume of Big Data Information Out There? Step This Way...

If you’re trying to navigate your way through the Big Data landscape and can’t see the wood for the trees, allow us to show you the way by cutting right to the chase with this new series of concise and right-to-the-point reports.

5. R/plyr: ddply – Error in vector(type, length) : vector: cannot make a vector of mode ‘closure’.

In my continued playing around with plyr’s ddply function I was trying to group a data frame by one of its columns and return a count of the number of rows with specific values and ran into a strange (to me) error message.
