For our main February meetup Colt and Leif will present a high-level overview of a production bigdata system that uses Hadoop MapReduce, HDFS, and HBase. As well as describe how to use those technologies to create a horizontally scalable system to continually process lots of data and make it available for nearly instant access.
I'll be bringing some drinks. Feel free to bring a six pack of your favorite if you desire. This is going to be a great meetup on a problem space that a ton web apps struggle with. See everybody on the 6th.
If you have trouble finding us, call Rob @[masked]
