Our group has grown like crazy since we started back in 2010!
For November we'd like to step back and make sure that we're addressing the needs of some of our newer members. John Darrah is going to present a "Hadoop 101". Come and get an overview of how Hadoop works, the key Hadoop Ecosystem projects associated with Hadoop and how they work together, and an example use case showing how Hadoop can be used to compliment a traditional data warehouse.
If you are new to big data this should be an excellent introduction and a great way to network with other people interested in big data!
