Afternoon Hadoop World — Possible Path Through Great Content

Categories: General

It’s been repeated over and over again that Hadoop World is packed with great content, and I will again reaffirm this fact. Take a glance at the agenda to see for yourself all the presentations you surely will not want to miss. This post will take you on a stroll down a possible Hadoop World afternoon breakout session path.

SRA, International Inc. is presenting “SIFTing Clouds” at 1:45pm with Paul Burkhardt. He will describe the SRA’s MapReduce implementations of the Scale-Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm, a well-known computer vision algorithm used for object recognition. The SIFT MapReduce application enables fast object identification in distributed image datasets.

Next, at 2:20pm Kevin Weil will be presenting “The Hadoop Ecosystem at Twitter. This presentation will dive into how Twitter uses applications such as Pig, HBase, and Hive on-top of Hadoop to solve critical business and engineering problems.

Then, at 2:55pm Charles Zedlewski of Cloudera is giving a presentation highlighting updates to Cloudera’s Distribution for Hadoop (CDH) and to Cloudera Enterprise. This presentation is titled “Cloudera Roadmap Review” and will also include valuable insights into development plans for the next 12 months.

For those who will be attending, I strongly suggest you map out your Hadoop World path early using the agenda and program guide. If you wait until the last minute you will surely find yourself caught between breakout sessions trying to decide which to attend.
