Event Description

We will have the Eclipse Hawaii User's Group ( meeting on Tuesday (05/26) at 5:30 pm at IBM on Ala Moana Blvd. DataSkill will provide refreshments.

Topic: Hadoop, Elastic MapReduce & Eclipse

Riding on the excitement from April's presentation on Eclipse and Amazon EC2, we'll be taking a look at a powerful way to take advantage of all that processing potential. Ever wondered how Google crawls and processes the entire web? With incredible amounts of data (on the order of exobytes) being generated across the world, how can one process, analyze, and derive value from it all? At the May meeting of the Eclipse Users' Group, we'll take a look at Hadoop, the open source Map Reduce and distributed file system framework. Map Reduce is a distributed data processing paradigm, originally popularized by Google, designed to utilize clusters of commodity machines to crunch very large data sets. Hadoop is an open source implementation of MapReduce, along with supporting systems and Frameworks, that you can use right now on your own machines or on Amazon EC2. We'll also look at Eclipse based tools that can help you write Map Reduce programs. In addition, we'll take a look at Pig, the high level language for writing Hadoop Map Reduce jobs.

Our speaker is Seth Ladd of Camber Corp.

You'll also have a chance to meet with other Eclipse Users and to share what you've been doing with Eclipse and other cool tools. If you have any questions or want more information, please visit our site at:

Thanks for the head's up, John. We'll definitely mention that training during the presentation. :)

We'd really like to attend, but we'll be in NY. This is our favorite location. We hope to see more in the IBM building :-)
