Announcing the Hadoop Summit at Yahoo, March 25th, 2008

With all the growing interest in Hadoop (especially after yesterday's news), it seems like a fitting time to mention the Hadoop Summit we're hosting on March 25th:

Yahoo! is hosting the first summit on Apache Hadoop on March 25th in Sunnyvale. The summit is sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) and brings together leaders from the Hadoop developer and user communities. Hadoop is now being used by companies in production environments, by academic and industrial research groups, and at universites for teaching data parallel computing. The speakers will cover topics in the areas of extensions being developed for Hadoop, case studies of applications being built and deployed on Hadoop, and a discussion on future directions for the platform.

The lineup of speakers is a who's who of the Hadoop community and they all have some great experience to share.
