Pig vs. MapReduce: When, Why, and How (with Donald Miner)

Speaker bio: Dr. Donald Miner is Chief Technology Officer at ClearEdge IT Solutions and the author of MapReduce Design Patterns. Previously, he was a Solutions Architect at EMC Greenplum, where he advised and helped customers implement and use Greenplum's big data systems. Prior to working with Greenplum, Donald architected several large-scale and mission-critical Hadoop deployments with the U.S. Government as a contractor. He is also involved in teaching, having previously instructed industry classes on Hadoop and a variety of artificial intelligence courses at the University of Maryland, BC. Donald received his PhD from the University of Maryland, BC in Computer Science, where he focused on Machine Learning and Multi-Agent Systems in his dissertation.

Donald's talk will cover how to use native MapReduce in conjunction with Pig, including a detailed discussion of when users might be best served to use one or the other.

We'll have a few copies of MapReduce Design Patterns to give away, and pizza and drinks will be provided. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
