Intro to MapReduce, Calling all Beginners

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

    Very good. When do we have the next one---
    I would like to suggest drilling into Hive and HBase and how we can query using HiveQL

    Don't you guys find it hard to really learn Hadoop if you don't use it every day? I myself know Hadoop and how it works at a conceptual level but without any true experience...it's kinda hard. How are you guys learning it? Invented side projects? Trying to find excuses to use it at work?
