11/18 Hadoop Bay Area User Group recap

Hi Hadoopers

Thanks everyone for joining us last Wednesday night at the Yahoo!’s Sunnyvale campus. We had more than a hundred attendees, a nice record to mark the last meeting for 2009. I’m happy to see cool presentations coming out of the growing community and many interesting solutions implemented on top of this amazing technology.
