This group aims to bring together anyone who is currently a user of Hadoop to meet regularly, network and share their expertise and knowledge around practical use cases and the latest trends and innovations. If you are based in the UAE or in neighboring countries, feel free to join and participate.
We have taken this initiative to a broader audience and created a meetup for all Big Data enthusiasts and professionals. If you want to learn Hadoop and other big data technologies then you should join UAE Big data group http://www.meetup.com/UAE-Big-Data-Group
All the Hadoop related meetups will still be announced in this group.
