The good folks at Google NYC are up for hosting an HBase Meetup on the night before Strata/Hadoop World starts. For speakers, so far we have:
+ Nick Dimiduk of HortonWorks (and hosts) on: "State of Apache HBase, 1.0 release"
+ Tigran.Khrimian & Aaron Carreas on "HBase @ FINRA"
+ Masatake Iwasaki of NTT Data on "HTrace: Dapper-like Tracing in HBase and HDFS"
+ Lars George of Cloudera on "Sizing your HBase Cluster"
(Ping the organizers if you have something you'd like to talk about)
Beer, wine, and cheese will be provided. We'll need pre-registered names before the event so please make sure your meetup profile is up-to-date. Signups will close the day before (there'll be no last-minute registration allowed).
Thanks. Hope to see you there!
