Hi Steve!! I saw you're in the defunct /palm-webos/ meetup.com group, so just letting people know there's a legit group with a September meetup planned! It's here: http://meetup.com/sfbaywebos/events/3... hope this finds you well! TC..
Bay Area Storm Users is a group for developers and companies using Twitter's Storm real-time data processing and DRPC framework. We get together to discuss best practices, usage patterns, and to exchange ideas.
Storm is a distributed realtime computation system. Similar to how Hadoop provides a set of general primitives for doing batch processing, Storm provides a set of general primitives for doing realtime computation. Storm is simple, can be used with any programming language, and is a lot of fun to use!
