I'm proud to announce, that for the September meeting we have a very special guest and talk.
Wouter de Bie is visiting us from Stockholm. He is Team Lead Analytics and Data Infrastructure at Spotify, and he co-organizes the Hadoop User Group at Stockholm.
Wouter will present "Data infrastructure at Spotify", he will have a look at how Spotify's data infrastructure works, why they even have a "data infrastructure" and how it's used. He'll look at different components, like Hadoop and Kafka and explain how they got to where they are today, what went well and where they failed.
Of course you know about Spotify, you should also know Spotify is building Europe's largest Hadoop cluster. In this meeting you'll have an outstanding opportunity to listen to and meet Wouter, ask anything you want and get to know a real-life Big Data solution and use case.
Besides, there will be time for beers and networking, as usual.
Finally, just a few words to mention that we have a great meeting space available thanks to the cool co.up guys (find detailed location instructions above), and that there will be some sponsored drinks by Datasalt.
Hoping to see you all there,
