Ted Dunning, MapR, Presents "Real-time on Hadoop: A New Approach Makes It Easier


Hadoop is a great technology, but traditionally it tends to be separated from other excellent new techniques, such as Storm for real-time or d3 for visualization. For example, because Hadoop is batch, real-time and Hadoop systems don’t usually work well together. But some new twists in architecture can change that. This talk shows how these separate new technologies can work seamlessly with a distributed system at scale.


In the Bechtel Collaboratory at the Discovery Learning Center. The DLC is part of the Engineering Center at the University of Colorado. It's really not that difficult to find.
