Apache Hadoop YARN has come a long way this year... it's a full-fledged sub-project of Apache Hadoop now and already deployed on a massive 2000 node cluster at Yahoo. Many projects (both open-src and otherwise) are also porting to work in YARN such as Storm, S4 and lots of them are in fairly advanced stages. We also have several individuals implementing one-off or ad-hoc application on YARN.

Seems like this is a good time for YARN developers to catch up and talk more about YARN, it's current status and medium-term and long-term roadmap.

Agenda includes:
# YARN committers from Yahoo (Bobby/Thomas/Jason et. al) talking about current deployments at Yahoo, lessons learnt, stability etc.
# Vinod K V, Bikas, Sid & Arun (all Hortonworks) talking about upcoming features such as RM Restart, Container Re-use for MR, Multi-resource scheduling etc.
# Chris Riccomini from LinkedIn talking about his experiences building new applications on top of YARN.
