    Great presentation of the basics of Hadoop, with perspective around its strengths and the environments to use it in. For someone about to install...perfect. I'm thinking the advanced users may have been bored...?

    Good location, GREAT topic...but the Hortonworks speaker on Hadoop was a bland sales pitch (and long). Craig Vitter from Ikanow on the MapReduce was more informational and interesting. Thanks for the pizza!
