March R User Group Meetup! Joint meeting with the Hadoop User Group!

  • Mar 23, 2011 · 5:30 PM
  • Orbitz World HQ

For March we're having a joint meeting with the Chicago Hadoop User group! The obvious theme for the meeting is using R on Hadoop, specifically Amazon's Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) service. Q Ethan McCallum will provide an intro to EMR, and I will introduce Segue, an R package for R parallel processing with EMR.

Make sure you RSVP with your first and last name so we can get you on the security list!

    Each speaker had his own style, and each one did a great job.

    David, I'm not sure. I'm not familiar with the Orbitz wifi system so I don't know if they have a guest network. Probably the best bet is to just try my simple example out at home after the presentation. I'm going to focus on concepts rather than a detailed example, anyhow.

    JD - will there be wireless? I'm trying to decide if I should bring my laptop to play along / test drive Segue and EMR. Thanks!

    Tathagata, sorry I'm slow in responding. Come on over. Good chance we'll still be hanging out talking, at least informally, until 7:30.
