Formerly known as AHUG (http://austinhug.blogspot.com/), this will be the third meetup organized from our new home on meetup.com.
This meetup will be all about real experiences writing software using Storm (http://storm-project.net/). Though currently billed as the "new shiny" by many in the big-data space, these presentations will go into detail on what it's like to actually write code using Storm. Like any distributed system, the devil is in the details and operationalization can lead to a lot of surprises - even with substantial planning.
Both presentations are by Austin locals, so come on by and support your local tech scene.
Food, drinks will be provided. The event will be @ the (NEW!) Infochimps offices. Bring a camp chair.

Enter through the tall, double glass doors near the building corner. Free parking is available in the Art Works parking lot and on Winflo Drive.
