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.
