This group is for everyone interested in real-time access to big data. We welcome developers, data scientists, analysts - everyone trying to figure out how to get access - and analysis - quickly; data in HDFS, S3, NoSQL databases, etc. Why did I form this group? There are a number of interesting Open Source and proprietary solutions trying to provide real-time access to Big Data and a high density of folks here in the Bay Area working on solutions. Industry analysts are saying "this is the year of real-time access to Big Data". Let's get together and share our learnings, do demos, and receive presentations from our local experts here in Silicon Valley. Looking forward to meeting you all!
