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

Pre-Architecture builds and theory so far, I have quite a bit of experience working with Hadoop users and helping them build out the environment. I am looking forward to getting neck deep with working solutions and new points of view.

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

looking to gain and share new ideas and use cases for Hadoop. Coming from a big corporate landscape can sometimes leave you too far from what is really happening in the world of IT. Hadoop and Open Stack are a major focus for myself and I would like to share my views and experiences from the IT builder POV.


Hey Thugs I am a 10 year rookie working as a enterprise strategist for a major IT provider.
