DZone's Guide to

Big Data, Business Intelligence, and Analytics

The DZone Guide to Big Data, Business Intelligence, and Analytics takes the three V's of the analysts (volume, velocity, variety) and translates them into what coders, architects, and sysadmins are actually doing right now: Spark, YARN, Storm, Mesos, Myriad, Kafka, columnar queries, OLAP — and how all of these stack — and much more.

"Terrific guide! I was expecting the same blah blah about Hadoop, but it sang a new song about all of life after hadoop. I tell people: "Hadoop is like the Wright Brothers airplane. It was historic, but you wouldn't want to try to commute on it." Richer and sharper analysis than I was expecting—a keeper!"

Although some believe Java is dying, developments such as the upcoming release of Java 9 and the strength of the Java community tell another story. New JVM-based languages like Kotlin and exciting changes in Java 9 such as Project Jigsaw, Streams API improvements, and JShell prove a bright future ahead. The 2017 Guide to Java explores upcoming features of Java 9, how to make your apps backwards-compatible, a look into whether Microservices are right for you, and using the Futures API in Java.
Microservices haven’t yet hit their 10th birthday, and already, they have dramatically improved developers’ ability to easily change, replace, and scale applications. The increased popularity of Microservices has even led to the development of technologies that coordinate well with the architectural pattern. This Guide focuses on the best approaches to reduce overhead during migration, an efficient method that teams working with Microservices can communicate with each other, and the best hosts for your applications.
The DZone 2014 Guide to Continuous Delivery provides data, ideas, and solutions that your organization can use to drastically improve its software production process.
The DZone Guide to the Java Ecosystem is an essential publication for understanding current research and trends surrounding Java development. It covers benefits of recent language updates, microservices and containers as they apply to Java, practical monitoring advice, and reactive programming principles.
The age of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies seems to be right around the corner. Companies like Facebook & Google are breaking ground on astounding innovations in AI while others, like Tesla, warn of the possibility for harm. The purpose of this Guide is to steer you and your team through endless possibility, and to help build ethically responsible technologies that improve and enhance our lives.
The key to the modernization of Java is the energy and enthusiasm of the Java developer community at large.
