Our Hive meetup is coming up this Thursday, please don't forget to update your RSVP if you want to come or can't make it. As the meetup is at SkillsMatter please don't forget to also register at their event page if you want to attend. Sorry you have to signup in two places, but at least they'll get the beer and pizza numbers correct if you do!
We've also got $50 AWS vouchers for us to get started with Hive on Elastic Map Reduce. As we've not got loads of time on the evening if you want to take part in the workshop I would recommend that you signup for an AWS account before hand, it's all free and you can enter the codes I'll be giving out on the evening. We won't have enough for everyone so it'll probably be first-come first-served, and I'll send a few more details out for the workshop next week.
Things are also kicking off for Big Data Week at the end of April. I'm finalising details of the Hadoop meetup for the month but it should hopefully be a half-day event in London on April 25th with a great lineup of speakers.
The other events for the week so far are from April 23rd-29th:
So plenty to choose from and covers a wide range of different topics in this field.
Hopefully see you on Thusday.
