Building Hadoop Data Applications with Kite

With a such a large number of components in the Hadoop
ecosystem, writing Hadoop applications can be a big challenge for newcomers. In this talk Tom looks at best practices for building data applications that run on Hadoop, and introduces the Kite SDK, an open source project created at Cloudera with the goal of simplifying Hadoop application development by codifying many of these best practices.

Meet with Tom White:

Tom White is one of the foremost experts on Hadoop. He has been an Apache Hadoop committer since February 2007, and is a Member of the Apache Software Foundation. Tom is a software engineer at Cloudera, where he has worked, since its foundation, on the core distributions from Apache and Cloudera. Previously he was an independent Hadoop consultant, working with companies to set up, use, and extend Hadoop. He has written numerous articles for O’Reilly, and IBM’s developerWorks, and has spoken at many conferences, including ApacheCon and OSCON. Tom has a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and an M.A. in philosophy of science from the University of Leeds, UK. He currently lives in Wales with his family.

    Although it was a very specialized topic targeted at Hadoop developers, I had a good time talking with people and learning about the Kite SDK (formerly the Cloudera Development Kit) which provides a set of libraries and tools based on best practices to make development on top of the Hadoop stack easier. Thanks to all involved in this meetup!
