Again, this is a short summary of the dates surrounding Hadoop World. Obviously we have not included everything happening in NYC, we have condensed and included what we believe will be of most interest to you. If you feel we have left something out—especially a Hadoop-related item—please let us know, we would love to add your event to our calendar.

Get ready for an exciting couple of Hadoop days! And a big thank you to Apache Hadoop for giving us a reason to put this event together!
