3 Top Books Every Analytics Engineer to Read

Many of the analytics jobs nowadays are for the financial domain. The top financial domains are Banking, Payments, and credit cards. 
The Best Books are on:

The skills you need to work in data analytics are SAS, UNIX, Python, and JavaScript.  I have selected three books for beginners of data analysts. 

1. SAS best book 
I found one best book that is little SAS. This post covers almost all examples and critical macros you need for your job.

The best-selling Little SAS Book just got even better. Readers worldwide study this easy-to-follow book to help them learn the basics of SAS programming.

Now Rebecca Ottesen has teamed up with the original authors, Lora Delwiche, and Susan Slaughter, to provide a new way to challenge and improve your SAS skills through thought-provoking questions, exercises, and projects.
2. UNIX best book
The basic commands you will get everywhere. The way of executing Macros or shell scripts is really you need. This is a good book so that you can automate…

Spark SQL Query how to write it in Ten steps

Spark SQL example
Spark SQL example
The post tells how to write SQL query in Spark and explained in ten steps.This example demonstrates how to use sqlContext.sql to create and load two tables and select rows from the tables into two DataFrames.

The next steps use the DataFrame API to filter the rows for salaries greater than 150,000 from one of the tables and shows the resulting DataFrame. Then the two DataFrames are joined to create a third DataFrame. Finally the new DataFrame is saved to a Hive table.

1. At the command line, copy the Hue sample_07 and sample_08 CSV files to HDFS:
$ hdfs dfs -put HUE_HOME/apps/beeswax/data/sample_07.csv /user/hdfs
$ hdfs dfs -put HUE_HOME/apps/beeswax/data/sample_08.csv /user/hdfs

where HUE_HOME defaultsto /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hue (parcel installation) or /usr/lib/hue
(package installation).

2. Start spark-shell:
$ spark-shell

3. Create Hive tables sample_07 and sample_08:

scala> sqlContext.sql("CREATE TABLE sample_07 (code string,description string,total_emp
scala> sqlContext.sql("CREATE TABLE sample_08 (code string,description string,total_emp

4. In Beeline, show the Hive tables:
[0: jdbc:hive2://hostname.com:> show tables;
| tab_name |

| sample_07 |
| sample_08 |

5. Load the data in the CSV files into the tables:
scala> sqlContext.sql("LOAD DATA INPATH '/user/hdfs/sample_07.csv' OVERWRITE INTO TABLE
scala> sqlContext.sql("LOAD DATA INPATH '/user/hdfs/sample_08.csv' OVERWRITE INTO TABLE

6. Create DataFrames containing the contents of the sample_07 and sample_08 tables:
scala> val df_07 = sqlContext.sql("SELECT * from sample_07")
scala> val df_08 = sqlContext.sql("SELECT * from sample_08")

Apache Spark
7. Show all rows in df_07 with salary greater than 150,000:
scala> df_07.filter(df_07("salary") > 150000).show()
The output should be:
| code| description|total_emp|salary|
|11-1011| Chief executives| 299160|151370|
|29-1022|Oral and maxillof...| 5040|178440|
|29-1023| Orthodontists| 5350|185340|
|29-1024| Prosthodontists| 380|169360|
|29-1061| Anesthesiologists| 31030|192780|

|29-1067| Surgeons| 50260|191410|
|29-1069|Physicians and su...| 237400|155150|

8.Create the DataFrame df_09 by joining df_07 and df_08, retaining only the code and description columns.
scala> val df_09 = df_07.join(df_08, df_07("code") ===
scala> df_09.show()

The new DataFrame looks like:
| code| description|
|00-0000| All Occupations|
|11-0000|Management occupa...|
|11-1011| Chief executives|
|11-1021|General and opera...|

9. Save DataFrame df_09 as the Hive table sample_09:
scala> df_09.write.saveAsTable("sample_09")

10. In Beeline, show the Hive tables:
[0: jdbc:hive2://hostname.com:> show tables;
| tab_name |
| sample_07 |
| sample_08 |
| sample_09 |
