Kai Voigt (Cloudera) on Hadoop

Folks, Kai Voight from Cloudera is in town, and has kindly offered to drop by and talk Hadoop. For those who remember the great talk on Pig and Hive given by Ian Wrigley last year - you can expect more of the same this time.

We're still working on figuring out the exact subject of the talk (suggestions welcome), but in the meantime mark this spot in your diaries. Should be an cracking night!

We'll be hosting the night at Fishburners in Ultimo, the red hot core of the nuclear reactor that it is the Sydney startup scene.

Cloudera are also kindly sponsoring beer and pizza on the night.

 

Kai's Bio

Kai studied computer science in Kiel, his diploma thesis covered a HTTP session framework for web based applications. For over 5 years, he worked for MySQL as an instructor and consultant, also covering MySQL Cluster, a distributed high available database. Currently, he's an instructor at Cloudera, the major software and service supporting Hadoop and related projects.

    This was an informative and interesting introduction into the world of Hadoop and Mapreduce. I certainly got value out of it. Thank you.

    Working on some fun slide set for the meetup. Some introduction for the new folks, then some admin stuff on Flume, then some boring graph theory for the geeks :)

    Similary have the trade off between this and the SURF meetup - see Dans comment - so maybe a bit late

    Can we add some real business cases on using Hadoop as a subject please?

    Well, I will be there- but if we make it half an hour later so that I don't have to trade off this and the SURF meetup - http://www.meetup.com/R-Users-Sydney/events/21021871/ - that would be better. Just sayin'.
