    Amazing Platform,
    It was my first time to this meetup and I am just beginning to learn Big Data technologies on CDH and very frankly this is one of the best forums I feel is available today. There was knowledge everywhere in the room and unlike a corporate environment everyone is more than willing to share their piece of expertise. Thanks to Tom White for sharing his views on how his Book can help in understanding internals of Big Data.

    Also Thanks to Eli, Alex and all the organizers.. I will be looking forward to more such events going forward.

    Thank You.

    Great Meetup.
    Paul Mackles's presentation was very effective and showed a good example of Hadoop in a live project. Had some interesting conversation with Tsuyoshi Ozawa on how he intends to leverage Combiners at node/rack level. Junping Du's presentation was quite informative on virtualization.

    The best part for me was to Meet Tom White, The author of 'Hadoop: The definitive guide'. Tom shared some interesting insights on Hadoop architecture. I guess, I just missed meeting the Hbase guru.

    Thanks to FourSquare and Cloudera for providing space and refreshments.
    Thank you all !
