WYLUG Monthly Meeting: Monday 09 June 2008

Our next meeting will be on Monday 09 June 2008 in Leeds University’s EC Stoner Building.

The meeting room is sign-posted from the main EC Stoner Building entrance (level 7, the side facing the Parkinson Tower).

The meeting officially starts at 7:00pm, but the room will be open for coffee, tea, biscuits and chat from 6:30pm. Afterwards, we usually go to the Victoria pub, behind the Town Hall, for geeky chatter.

Talk: Hadoop and Friends

Robert Burrell Donkin is going to give a talk on ‘Hadoop And Friends’:

Leaving clustering behind: scaling grids to utility computing and why this matters. A lightning tour of the emerging open source utility computing nexus: Hadoop, Lucene, Nutch, Solr, SmartFrog, Mahoot, Pig, Hama, Zookeeper. More than Java: a two minute introduction to MapReduce. Catch the wave: why now’s the right time to get involved and how to do it.
