we are planning to offer Hadoop bootcamps in Houston, for you to jump on the Big Data bandwagon without having to go to Silicon Valley for that. The outline will be similar to this one: http://hadoopilluminated.com/bootcamp.php, but in a different time frame.
It is time to have a Hadoop group in Houston. We will learn about Hadoop and related technologies. This is for anybody interested in Hadoop/BigData: software developers, manager, entrepreneurs, recruiters.
