SMAQ (Storage, MapReduce and Query) is an emerging architecture pattern pioneered by organisations such as Google, Powerset, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others to handle massive quantities of globally distributed data effectively and scaleably.

We're a group of systems engineers and data scientists who are solving the challenges of building the highly scalable software systems that enable "big data" and the next generation of business intelligence.

We've had speakers from IBM, Google, Cloudera and others, and have some great ones lined up for the coming year.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
