Discuss Apache Drill: Building Highly Flexible, High Performance Query Engines

SQL is one of the most widely used languages to access, analyze, and manipulate structured data. As Hadoop gains traction within enterprise data architectures across industries, the need for SQL for both structured and loosely-structured data on Hadoop is growing rapidly Apache Drill started off with the audacious goal of delivering consistent, millisecond ANSI SQL query capability across wide range of data formats. At a high level, this translates to two key requirements – Schema Flexibility and Performance. This session will be deliverd by Keys Botzum and will delve into the architectural details in delivering these two requirements and will share with the audience the nuances and pitfalls we ran into while developing Apache Drill.

Keys Botzum is Senior Principal Technologist with MapR Technologies, where he wears many hats. His primary responsibility is interacting with customers in the field, but he also teaches classes, contributes to documentation, and works with engineering teams. He has over 15 years of experience in large scale distributed system design. Previously, he was a Senior Technical Staff Member with IBM, and a respected author of many articles on the WebSphere Application Server as well as a book.

    There will be a few vegans there tonight (myself included), and I heard you usually have food. Will there be a vegan option? If not, I'll make sure to eat ahead of time. Would just like to know to for planning purposes. Thanks!

      Oh. I order from the East Side one. I did not think to ask. Just looked online and did not see anything. Now that I know the trick, I will try to accommodate you in the future.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
