“ Great group of people that seem to be growing in number. There are some great presentations and I really enjoy the meetings. Dan Harvey does a great job of finding speakers. Thanks Dan! The only thing I would say is that there is sometimes an assumption that new people just know Hadoop in detail which may not always be the case and as the numbers climb (and they are way bigger than the first time I attended) there will be people no doubt who are considering Hadoop but may not have taken the plunge yet. I have talked to a few people in that category at the meetings. A small pocket Guide to Hadoop basics would be great for new people as a 'welcome' handout. If you have not installed Hadoop yet then I recommend you familiarise yourself with Hadoop before you come and you'll find it a great meeting. Also, there is some overlap with the Big Data User Group UK which met the night before the Hadoop User Group. That meeting has a broader technology scope and not always focussed on Hadoop. ”

“ I've enjoyed and learnt something at every Hadoop User Group meeting I've attended. It is the number one technical meetup that I try to get to every time. Meeting and chatting to other Hadoop users is as important to me as the technical talks. (The more technical the better!) ”
