Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Big Data Zone (Apr. 11 to Apr. 17). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Mikio's Guide To Real-Time Big Data

In most of these applications, you have to deal with evented data which comes in “in real-time”. Data is constantly changing and you usually want to consider the data over a certain time frame (“page views in the last hour”), instead of just taking all of the past data into account.

2. (Something, Something) Big Data!

SQL as an interface to big data operations is desirable for the same reasons the author found it useful, but it also introduces some performance implications that are not suited to traditional MapReduce-style jobs which tend to have completion times in the tens of minutes to hours rather than seconds.

3. The Dark Sides of Lucene

4. Coloring Different Data Sources in IntelliJ IDEA

5. Social Media Mining With R

Get down with R and start visualizing your data in a whole new way!
