  • Chicago area Hadoop User Group (CHUG)

     CHUG is now in to its 6th year. We have over 2500 members and growing. The hardest part of running a meetup is trying to find interesting topics and locations large enough for people to come as well as finding people who can film the presentation to place on our vimeo site. Thanks to my partners in crime, we've been able to keep this group going ...

  • Chicago area Hadoop User Group (CHUG)

     I do have one request. This was my first Hadoop group meetup here and I came from work. I work in downtown Chicago and I had to leave work at 4 and still made to the meeting by 5:45 pm. I would suggest starting the talk at 6 instead of 5:30 pm and more people from far away will be able to attend. Thanks

  • Chicago area Hadoop User Group (CHUG)

     Great group. Could not attend sessions in downtown Chicago, so appreciate the move to also hold meetings out in the western burbs. Support having equal number of meetings and the choices of topics, networking are worth it several times over.

As you are a founder of this group I attended the event on Monday and thought the talk was very informative and also connected with a few other people/companies. So nice job!!
