April Hadoop Meetup: Big Data Week Afternoon Special

  • This location is shown only to members

For Big Data Week we've got an afternoon meetup with a wide range of talks from Hadoop users in the UK. We'll be starting the talks at 2pm through till 5:30pm then have the usual drinks and discussion afterwards. We're also lucky to have Doug Cutting coming along to the afternoon who will be taking part in the discussion panel.


An overview of the talks, click-through to find out more! The schedule is approximate and may change on the day.

    Very interesting content. A pity that not all info could be as well heard.

    Arrived late so missed Musicmetric and the start of Mendeley but what I saw was very interesting. Excited to hear that people are looking at computing paradigms beyond MapReduce for hadoop.

    Unfortunate that we didn't have enough tech to amplify the panel. Talk topics quite interesting

    This was one of the best meetups in Big Data week so far!

    Great first face to face experience of the Hadoop user group for me, although I've been lurking on the Hadoop MLs for a long time!. I hope to see you for future events

    Very interesting meetup and varied speakers (even if I do say so myself). Lots of useful conversations about real Hadoop experiences in the bar afterwards, too.

    A great meeting shedding light on Hadoop in action and how people have solved real problems and built businesses with it. I look forward to the next one.

    This was the first meetup I attended, so was hard to give accurate judgement. But everything was very good, except that Panel talk was not properly equipped with microphones, so it was hard to listen (impossible from row 10+)

  • Bruce D.

    Great talks. Lots of experience and knowledge.

    April 26, 2012

  • Richard P.

    Needed a microphone for the panel session. Other than that it was really good - interesting topics for the speakers.
