May Hadoop Meetup: Realtime computation with Hadoop & Storm

In our May meetup we're focusing on how it's possible to scale real-time data processing. We'll look at ways of doing this with both Hadoop, Storm and other distributed platforms.


Pizza for the evening will be kindly sponsored by MapR where Ted is Chief Application Architect.


Currently confirmed talks for the evening :-



Details for the evening are still being planned so these details may change.

    There wasn't much of Storm discussed last night but Ted was brilliant with his presentation and magic. It was nice to know about Acunu as well.

    I found it very interesting, particularly to get a perspective on what's important to those who have a stake in realtime analysis of large datasets. Ted Dunning had a great and amusing presentation style, which I enjoyed... in addition to the content.

    Really enjoyed the talks and the atmosphere was relaxed and informal, so it was a great place to meet new people.

    It was good introduction by Ted Dunning to Storm. I have just started study of Hadoop and this sort of introduction into Storm sets my mindset on what I would want to do in my own project with Hadoop and Storm.

    Two interesting talks, the second one quite entertaining but both also informative.

    Good evening. Talks were about solving problems with the hadoop stack, rather than specifically about Hadoop, which to me was far more interesting and applicable.
    Talks went a little of topic. Great Venue, beer choice and pizza.

    Unfortunately I have had to pull out of this evening's meetup, so have set my spot free for someone else to enjoy!

  • Thomas Alisi

    unfortunately I cannot make it tonight, I set my spot free, hope you'll enjoy the meetup!

    Yes it's a bit confusing sorry, I sent the e-mail around before I knew exactly what was going to do. So the limit is now 150, but it doesn't kick any people off the like I thought it might when I sent the e-mail. So if you're on the list that's fine and you can come, just currently no new people from the waiting list will be added when people change RSVP as not going.

    Capacity at a venue is quite a trick thing to get right, I'm always pushing for more given we don't get 100% turn-out but I also need to not annoy any of the venues as they are usually hosting us for free. If anyone does know any larger venues we can use as we grow please do let me know!

    Steve - I as was seriously asking because I happen to have been to this venue for quite a few meetups and was surprised it could only take 200. That was all... it wasn't moany or sarcastic.

    It's my own fault for being late to sign up.

  • Steve Loughran

    Lee, if you want to fund a bigger room, I'm sure it would work -though smaller sizes make for better events.

    What would be good would be for anyone who doesn't think they are going to make it should unmark themselves from the list of attendees, so as to free up more space. I think I'm in that category, so will let someone on the waitlist on.

    May 17, 2012

  • Dan Harvey

    Currently yes that cap is at 200, the venue can only hold so many! If you join the waiting list people usually change their RSVP nearer the day, I also may update it if I can increase the capacity. Thanks.

  • Lee Packham

    Is there really a 200 person cap?
