Founded in 2010, the core focus of the group has been on Hadoop and the related Big Data tools.  This is a forum where individuals who are interested in Big Data can meet and network.  We try to meet at least once a month to host a technical discussion on a related technology, as well as try to host other events to help foster the local Chicago Community.

Anyone who is local to the Chicagoland Area is welcomed to join so that they may either contribute their expertise or to learn from the local experts in the area.
