hadoop hackathon : learn Map Reduce (part 2)

Hello members

We will continue with our Hadoop Map Reduce series.
This will be in the Dojo classroom.

Based on past hackathon experiences, I want to institute a few changes:

* this hackathon will be limited to 50 members.  It is a more manageable number :-)

* We had problems with RSVPs in the past.  Quite a few people RSVPed yes and don't show up.
So please double confirm via email a day or two before the hackathon.

* this hackathon will be really hands-on.  As in 'writing code' :-)
so to take advantage of the hackathon,  please come with a WORKING HADOOP ENVIRONMENT
instructions here : http://www.meetup.com/BigDataGurus/messages/boards/thread/32347762

Just to emphasize, if you show up with no hadoop installed & running,  you'd miss out.

* Finally, I may ask for a small donation ($5 - $10) to get snack / drinks


thanks & see you there.
