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 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.
