: Wednesday, January 12,[masked]:00 PMWhere
667 Mission St. 4th Floor
San Francisco, CA 94105
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the first meetup event on Wednesday, January 12, 2011 from 6pm to 8pm.
Rapleaf has graciously offered to host the event in their SOMA headquarters at 667 Mission St. We are also thankful to Cloudera, who will be helping to sponsor the event.
The format of this event will be different than the presentation-based HUG; there will not be prepared lectures. Instead, all participants are asked to discuss their usage of, or questions about Hadoop. Please come prepared to introduce yourself and provide a one--two minute summary of what you're working on with Hadoop, areas you're interested in learning more about, and/or challenges that you're facing that might be addressed by a larger Hadoop community. All are welcome (developers, users, or managers; experienced or newbies).
Based on the common themes that arise, we will break into smaller groups to discuss these in greater depth. Several experienced Hadoopers will be on hand to help moderate small group discussions.
6pm - Socializing
6:30pm - Introductions, overview
7pm - Breakout sessions begin
8pm - Conclusion
