Big Data Hackathon: SQL for Hadoop

Our next Big Data Hackathon will take place Thursday, April 11th.

Guarantee your seat by registering here:

IBM Big SQL is new and exciting technology that extends the power of SQL to the world of Apache Hadoop data repositories (HDFS and HBase).

1:00pm-1:30pm: Networking

1:30-2:15pm: Introduction to IBM Big SQL

2:15-2:30pm: Hands on Lab prep & Development Environment setup

2:30-5:30pm: Hack away

Snacks & Beverages provided.

More Details:

Attendees get access to a Hadoop cluster on the IBM IM Demo Cloud. This Hadoop cluster is fully configured with both HDFS and HBase and has sample data loaded and available for queries. Participants will be able to download Big SQL JDBC and ODBC drivers and use these drivers with their favorite applications to explore and query data in the Hadoop cluster. Participants will also be able to use command line tools like JSqsh to submit their queries.

By leveraging our cloud environment, there is no need to obtain hardware, install and patch operating systems, install the Hadoop code or manage the Hadoop cluster.

    Nicolas, to attend this meetup, is it enough just to RSVP here,
    or I also have to register on the IBM website?
