We had a record number (70) of people attending last week?s presentation on Hbase. I am getting a lot of positive feedback. Thank you, Jonathan! Slides form the presentation can be found here: http://www.meetup.com/Hadoop-NYC/files/
ContextWeb is growing rapidly and we will pay a $500 USD hiring referral bonus to non-ContextWeb employees. See rules and jobs at http://www.contextweb.com/jobs
. Hadoop developers, send me your resumes or apply online (its a pity I cannot claim the referral bonus)
Reminder about promotion from Hive at 55 (the folks who provided us place for last meetup). Hive at 55 is offering one free day of coworking at their facility. All you have to do to redeem is email [address removed] and tell them that you'd like to take advantage of the free trial, that you are from the Hadoop NYC Meetup, and what day you plan on coming in to do coworking. For more details about hive at 55 check out http://www.hiveat55.com/home
, and feel free to contact them if you have any questions.
