Formerly known as AHUG (http://austinhug.blogspot.com/), this will be the second meetup organized from our new home on meetup.com.
This meetup will be about Hadoop in Production. The two presentations are by fellow Austinites. So come on down and support Hadoop development and research in your very own tech community.
