Introduction to Pig with Live Demonstration

 

Topic: Introduction to Pig with Live Demonstration

Abstract: Pig is a language for expressing data analysis and infrastructure processes. Pig is translated into a series of MapReduce jobs that are run by the Hadoop cluster. Pig is extensible through user-defined functions that can be written in Java and other languages. Pig scripts provide a high level language to create the MapReduce jobs needed to process data in a Hadoop cluster.

This presentation will briefly introduce Pig, then the majority of the time will be used to demonstrate sample Pig jobs running on Hadoop.

      Hi Jay, I updated the meetup settings so that you can add guests with your RSVP. If you change your RSVP - it should now give you the option to add upto 2 guests along with your RSVP. Let me know if you run into any issues!

    I've been called out of town on short notice. I've updated my RSVP, to open up a slot for someone waiting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
