    For those of you interested in a working example of a Dockerfile check out this project we put together for building a single build node Hadoop image.

    Was hoping to make meetup tonight, but not able to drive over from Cinti. We have a position at Knovation for a full stack developer to join a team to contribute to the next version of our product shaping the growth of the emerging education technology space. If there is an interest ...contact me for more details.

      Marci, I think I may have a great option for your full stack developer! I am in Indianapolis but am starting to move into the Cincinnati market. We can talk over the phone or I am happy to come to Cincy and meet with you. Please let me know the best way to contact you. Thanks!

    I have a large collection of time series data files in CSV format with different types in different columns. To parse the data, using C would require a lot of hand coding that reinvents the wheel. A month ago I started learning Python and found lists and dictionaries along with a CSV library to be helpful. For data analysis, Python was a quicker path to useful code. Just last week, I discovered Ruby, but I haven't played with it much yet. Have others in the group used Ruby for data analysis? If so, why do you prefer Ruby over Python?

      I suspect they're fairly similar for this purpose, except that Python is going to be a bit faster (which will matter most if you've a very large amount of data). Depending on just what type of data analysis you're doing, Python historically has more mature ecosystem of scientific libraries (see http://www.scipy.org/­). As an anecdote, Eli Lily uses Python quite often internally for data analysis (in addition to R, and Java IIRC).

      I'm a Rubyist through and through, but the difference between the two most often comes down to syntactical preferences. It just so happens that Ruby tickles my fancy. :-)

      This article summarizes key differences between Ruby and Python, and highlights why Python may be chosen for high performance, scientific computing: http://programmers.st...­

    Looks like the upcoming docker talk made the Docker Weekly :)

      Nice! Maybe we'll get a decent video recording, and make you famous.
