Been in Analytics for 3 yrs- need to know where to REALLY start!

I have been in analytics for a while.  However, it's all been through the use of basic tools- Excel, Access, etc.  I want to expand my knowledge base into Hadoop, Agile, all the other Big Data tools, but I have no idea where to start.  I'm looking for advice on what/where to start out in the basic concepts of these.Google is a great thing, but searching for a starting point has been less than hoped for.  Any and all help would be appreciated!DougSee More
