Hadoop is awesome. If you don't know why, or even if you do, we can talk about it.
Another venue change! This time it comes with some real perks. We will be down south for the next few meetups, and will be hosted by the wonderful Innovation Pavilion. At this time, we will provide some beer and pizza, as well.
This month we are having two presentations, one from myself, concerning NoSQL and Hadoop, in general. And one from Masroor Farooqi, concerning data warehousing and interconnecting data. While that may be just enough to entice, we _should_ also have a live four node cluster for you to connect to and have a quick demonstration on the nuts and bolts of Hadoop's configuration.
We look forward to seeing you, and hope you enjoy!
