An introduction to MapReduce for those new to Hadoop, just curious, or willing to help. We'll cover the role of mappers and reducers in hadoop, go over examples, and will generally try to address any questions beginners may have.
This will be the first of a regular (monthly?) beginners' track. We'll follow up with another session providing an overview of the various apache projects in the hadoop ecosystem and would like to schedule some hands-on events as well if there's interest and participation.
Meet and Greet: 6:30pm
Talk kicks off at 7pm
