Revolution Analytics and Apache Hadoop Meetup

We're excited to have Revolution Analytics be part of Hadoop Summit Community day! Join Revolution Analytics and other Hadoop and R enthusiasts for a fun interactive networking event to learn more on the power of R with Hadoop. 


5:00pm - 6:00pm Cocktails 

6:15pm-6:30pm Intro/networking

6:30pm-7:15pm Yarn and Hadoop New Core

This session will cover the changes in Hadoop from 1 to 2 and the new capabilities and opportunities that YARN brings as the resource management layer for Hadoop 2. Hortonworks will also be on hand to cover any other Hadoop tech discussion: Stinger, Tez, Knox etc. etc.

7:15pm - 8pm  Using R with Hadoop

Enabling business users to utilize Hadoop as a vital part of analytics projects allows businesses to quickly get value out of their Hadoop investment. R, being a prolific and rapidly growing data analysis language, now has an even stronger place in the Hadoop ecosystem.

We'll be discussing:

• Use cases for data mining and statistical / predictive analytics in Hadoop

• Ways to use open source R and other R packages to move analytics to Hadoop

• Demos that show how Revolution R Enterprise and Hortonworks can further integrate  for big data analytics applications such as customer analytics/ churn and fraud detection.
