Meeting Topic: Dean's Scalding Workshop
Dean led a 3-hour workshop at StrangeLoop on Scalding, Twitter's Scala API for Cascading, which is a high-level Java API for Hadoop. He'll do an abbreviated session Thursday night.
This will be hands on, so please clone the Github repo for it at https://github.com/ThinkBigAnalytics/scalding-workshop and follow the README instructions beforehand to set up the tools you'll need.
Note: As always, you must RSVP with a real name (or email it to us separately) so we can give your name to the building security ninjas in order to enter the building. Please do so by noon so we can order the right amount of food. Thanks!
Please send your suggestions or offers to speak for future meetings to the mailing list http://groups.google..... "Lightning" or full talks are welcome. So are coding exercises, hack fests, etc.
