HDFS files are write once files. I consider HDFS files as write-once and read-many files
I like MapReduce code a lot. Mappers and Reducers and how the overall hierarchy goes by. Hadoop is a platform that I have chosen a year ago and still I am in love with it because of it's simplicity for solving complex problems involving very large database. I also did Apache Giraph which goes into graph processing and was a great experience learning a whole new product of Hadoop. I like solving real life challenges using Hadoop like predicting earthquakes so that the results could be less devastating. This is one of my proposed ideas but there are many more like these which I like a lot.
HDFS doesn't do random reads very well. A caveat of HDFS to remember, it is a distributed file system abstracted on top of local file system by hadoop, suitable for storing huge files; however, it does not provide facility of tabular form of storage as such.
