SVP (Analytics) at Management Science Associates. Earlier background in statistical and econometric modeling. Interested in learning more about "big data" analytics from both a technical and business applications perspective.
We're a group of Pittsburgh-based Hadoop & cloud-computing technologists, enthusiasts and researchers who discuss emerging technologies, Hadoop & related software development (HBase, Hypertable, PIG, etc). The Hadoop Users Group (HUG) Pittsburgh consists of members from local universities and companies.
This group only meets in a physical place in Pittsburgh. If you are interested in webcasts about Hadoop, this group is not for you.
