What is your level of experience with Hadoop and related technologies?

Beginner. Just started going through presentations on Cloudera.

What do you hope to gain by participating in the Toronto HUG?

Understanding different applications of Hadoop and how tools are integrated together (hive, pig, hbase). Gain more insights in performance and architecture of Hadoop from experts, so I can decide when to use/not use Hadoop (and use it properly) in different problems. This will change over time. :)


Problem solver with a Math/Computer Science background and aspired to make the world a better place. Current interests include big data, system performance, volunteering. Interested in exploring Hadoop applications, architecture and performance.
