Dear HUG UK members,
A quick update for our meetup this month and our first Hadoop workshop. Details below.
Our sponsor for the October meetup is Strata. For HUG UK members, Strata offers a 20% discount for their London conference from November 11 to 13. The discount code is "HUGUK".
Furthermore, please update your RSVP if you cannot come to the meetup on October 22.
We are continually looking into new ways to improve our members' experience and interaction with HUG UK Meetup and how HUG UK can not only deliver great content and knowledge on Hadoop and Big Data technologies for its community, but how it can also provide a forum for skills development.
As part of this skills initiative we are introducing a new series of meetups called "Hadoop Workshops". These Meetups, which are free of charge and delivered by vendors, aim to provide hands-on experience and interaction with specific Hadoop and Big Data technologies in a simple 2-3 hour format.
The first in the series begins with "ETL with Syncsort: Make your ETL on Hadoop Smarter & Faster" on 22nd October @ Techub, 3-6pm. Further detail on this event and any associated pre-work will be available both on the specific meetup page.
