Pig, Hive and Sqoop Reference Links

Starting to get ramped up for the upcoming Hadoop project. 

Found a good reference cheat sheet for Apache PIG.

And a good reference tutorial on Apache HIVE.  With PDF Download.

Apache Derby, an Apache DB subproject, is an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java

Apache Sqoop for transferring data / files to and from HDFS using connectors run via jobs.  And Sqoop Basics.

And a few tweets:
