Hello LA-HUG members,

In preparation for tomorrow's meetup I'm sending out some instructions to ensure that we can get started smoothly. The focus of this talk is how to understand converting a recommendation algorithm to a mapreduce environment, rather than the specifics of running this example on Amazon (such information is already available in other tutorials online). What this means is that stepping through the python job flow will be the focus of tomorrow's discussion.

Thanks,

- Andrew Look
