We are happy to invite you to the third meeting of Stockholm HUG. The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 11th, 2013 at 18:00 at Spotify Office (Birger Jarlsgatan 61, 11tr, Stockholm). This time, the presentation will be given by our special guest, James Kinley from Cloudera.
Title: Introduction to Cloudera Impala
Speaker: James Kinley (Cloudera)
Cloudera Impala is a modern SQL engine for Hadoop. Impala provides fast, interactive SQL queries directly on your data stored in HDFS and HBase. This talk gives an overview of Impala, it's architecture and internals, and compares it to other systems such as Apache Hive and Google Dremel.
James Kinley is an EMEA Solutions Architecture at Cloudera, based in the UK. He has been using Hadoop since 2010 and has a background in cyber security.
Free pizza and beverages will be available for the participants during the meetup.
Note: please RSVP to this meetup, since we need to put everybody on a guest list for entering the Spotify office. The event will be held in the cafeteria of the Spotify office, so don’t go to the normal entrance but to the 11th floor.
The door will be open at 17:30. Because of fire regulations, we need to keep a list of everybody in the building, so please make sure that you get your name ticked off the list at the entrance or (in case of a +1), make sure that the person at the door puts your name on the list.
See you soon!
