Hive Query Language Book Recommendations


Hello Community,

Can someone please provide a link to good resources where I can learn how to write hive queries - HQL. ?

Or if you could recommend some good books that would also be great.

Following are the books that helped me a lot for Hive:Apache learning

  • Programming Hive: Data Warehouse and Query Language for Hadoop" by Edward Capriolo, Dean Wampler, and Jason Rutherglen – O'Reilly
  • Apache Hive Essentials by Dayong Du – Packt Publishing
  • Apache Hive Cookbook.

Here is the list of some blogs on Apache Hive as well where both the theoretical as well as practical aspect has been covered with images and examples:


Hope this helps.
