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!
