Hadoop User Group Meeting

In response to a number of requests from folks outside the Bay Area to have us record and post the Hadoop User Group presentations, here are the talks from the October meeting which was held this week at the Yahoo! Mission College campus.

We had Jun Rao from IBM Almaden Research talk about “Exploiting database join techniques for analytics with Hadoop”. This was followed by an update on Jaql by Kevin Beyer from IBM, who informed us that Jaql is now available as Open Source. The last talk was a lively discussion with Sriram Rao from Quantcast about his “Experiences moving a Petabyte Data Center”.

Bay Area Hadoop User Group meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of each month at Yahoo! Mission College in Santa Clara.
