If you happen to be in Bay Area on Thursday 9th November, then come check out the NoCOUG Fall Conference in California State University in downtown Oakland, CA.
Gluent is delivering a Hadoop for Database Professionals class as a separate track there (with myself and Michael Rainey as speakers) where we’ll explain the basics & concepts of modern distributed data processing platforms and then show a bunch of Hadoop demos too (mostly SQL-on-Hadoop stuff that database folks care about).
This should be a useful class to attend if you are wondering why all the buzz about Hadoop and various distributed “Big Data” computing technologies – and where do these technologies work well (and not work) in a traditional enterprise. All explained using database professionals’ terminology. And there’s a networking event in the end!
You can check out the event agenda here and can RSVP at http://nocoug.org/rsvp.html. If you aren’t already a NoCOUG member, you can still attend for free as a Gluent Guest using the secret code…. “GLUENT” :-)
See you soon!
