Businesses need data processing and analysis. It's a difficult world out there, we're still identifying the next steps, and debating their validity.
We will be down south for the next few meetups, and will be hosted by the wonderful Innovation Pavilion. At this time, we will provide some beer and pizza, as well.
This month we will have a presentation from Masroor Farooqi, concerning data warehousing and interconnecting data. While that may be just enough to entice, we _should_ also have a live three node cluster for you to connect to and have a quick demonstration on the nuts and bolts of Hadoop's configuration. I've finally found some work-arounds and cost-effective options to host, so this will be done by this meetup.
We look forward to seeing you, and hope you enjoy!
