Hi NoSQL NL members,
I wanted to let everyone know that there will be a first ever Dutch Hadoop Community Meetup in two weeks on February 8th, 2012. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/ArnXyu
This is a free meetup intended to bring together Hadoop users from The Netherlands (and possibly beyond). We have seen Hadoop usage grow steadily over past couple of months and thought it was time to try and bring everyone together for some serious tech talks and to create an opportunity to share our experiences using Hadoop. While this meetup is intended for Hadoop users, everyone who is interested in the technology for future projects or looking to learn about it is also welcome.
We have two interesting speakers for the evening and will leave plenty of time for socializing and having some serious tech discussion with your fellow Hadoop and NoSQL enthusiasts.
Speakers: Lars George, solution architect from Cloudera and author of the O'Reilly book: HBase, The Definitive Guide and Evert Lammerts from SARA, who is responsible for currently one of the largest Hadoop setups in NL.
17.00: Arrive and socialize
18.00: Talk: Hadoop at SARA, Evert Lammerts - SARA
19.00: Talk: TBD, Lars George - Cloudera
19.45: Drinks and snacks, socialize more
Late: Doors close
(Agenda suggestions are welcome.)
The meetup will be at the Xebia office in Hilversum (http://g.co/maps/38wa3) and we will provide food and drinks. The Xebia office is easy to get to by public transportation or car. We have some parking space as well.
