This meetup focuses on Scalability and technologies to enable handling large amounts of data: Hadoop, HBase, distributed NoSQL databases, and more!
There's not only a focus on technology, but also everything surrounding it including operations, management, business use cases, and more.
We've had great success in the past, and are growing quickly! Previous guests were from Twitter, LinkedIn, Amazon, Cloudant, Microsoft, 10gen/MongoDB, and more.
This month's guests:
Rahul Pathak, Sr PM, Amazon Redshift
Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. Rahul will cover the Redshift platform, its architecture, interesting implementation details and how to set it up and use it."
Justin Yan, Data Scientist, Redfin
In a short cameo, Justin will cover Redfin's Redshift use case: our pre-Redshift infrastructure, why we switched, and what Redshift is capable of [demo included!].
Our format is flexible: We usually have speakers who talk for ~30 minutes each and then do Q+A, plus discussion.
There'll be beer afterwards, of course!
