Details

This meetup focuses on Scalability and technologies to enable handling large amounts of data: Hadoop, HBase, distributed NoSQL databases, and more!

There's not only a focus on technology, but also everything surrounding it including operations, management, and business use cases. We've had great success in the past, and are growing quickly! Including guests from LinkedIn, Amazon, Cloudant, 10gen/MongoDB.

This month we'll have Swami Sivasubramanian, one of the authors of the seminal Amazon Dynamo paper.
We'll also have Ben Black talking about Riak.
Aaron Myers from Cloudera will be talking about their new Hue framework and Beeswax.

NOTE: It can be difficult to find the right building. When you get to the SLU complex, walk all the way towards the back left of the concrete stairs.

Our format is flexible: We usually have speakers who talk for ~20 minutes each and then do Q+A, plus lightning talks, dicussion, and then social time.

There'll be beer afterwards, of course! Fierabend, 422 Yale Ave N
