I see someone really wants to dive into some technology after all the theory of last time ;-) I certainly think it's a good idea to get our hands a bit dirty, but perhaps a mix of theory and code would be good. Any suggestions for "suitable" theory here..?

Hi all,

I would prefer to have the meeting on the 19th of August (I will be back from holiday on the 16th).

Since we are going to set up a new poll for the next papers to be presented, I will drop a few that I found interesting :

- interesting because there are some important Open Source solutions that took
an inspiration from it (ie. Hadoop FS)

- I think that Map Reduce probably will be (in the years to come) the proffered/simplest/easiest way 
to do distributed computing in industry level solutions

- just became a top-level Apache project and a nice example of an implementation of the noSQL compromise
- it's a good open source implementation of most of the stuff that exist in Dynamo (made by the Amazon guys)
- used by big guys (Facebook, Digg, Twitter), etc.

Cheers,
Paul.

Hi all,

I haven't been able to schedule a next meeting yet, but I am aiming to do that in the coming 24 hours, since I will be away for a holiday after that.

Three things that we need to decide upon:


  • The date. I suggest to keep 3 to 4 weeks between last week's meeting and the next one. Feel free to express your disagreement.
  • The location. Unless anybody else steps up and offers to host it at a venue somewhere in Amsterdam, I will schedule it at Xebia in Hilversum again, because I won't have the time to search for other options.
  • The papers. Given the outcome of the poll so far, I think I have a pretty good idea on what to choose next. (I will definitely mix in some implementation related papers.) However, if you already fancy talking about a particular paper yourself, then I will certainly let that weigh in. If you do, please let me know.


If the location is going to be Hilversum again, then I wouldn't mind aiming for August 12 or August 19, because I know we can have the entire office for ourselves.

So, just let me know about your preferences, then I will set up an event.

Cheers,

Wilfred
