Hadoop 101

I am glad to announce Vancouver HUG's first meetup. What's a better way to start our first meetup with a topic: "Hadoop 101"?

Our speaker, Jeff Lord, has been a Customer Operations Engineer at Cloudera for the past year. Prior to that he was responsible for the architecture and administration of multiple production Hadoop and HBase clusters that were used primarily for analytics and targeted recommendations by a mobile analytics and search provider in Seattle. Jeff is a contributor to the Apache Flume project and spends more than a good part of his waking hours helping developers and administrators get past their Hadoop obstacles.

    Hi there,
    I could run "Word Count" using VMware image here.

    At first, I got error in calling hadoop function after booting the virtual machine.
    Rebooting the virtual machine may change the situation.
    I couldn't figure out what the problem was.
    Do I have to wait longer after log-in the virtual machine?

    It was a great 1st meetup. The topic and the presented material provided us a great foundation for the group to further pursue on areas of interest. I have happy to see folks networking among themselves.

    I'm the lead programmer for a startup, and I'm very interested in Big Data - curious what lessons I can apply to our first product: PlayRank Basketball!
