(Update 2/6/2013 – Sorry, this event is sold out!)
With Strata Conference 2013 coming to town (Feb. 26-28, in Santa Clara, Calif.), we thought it would be a great opportunity to open our Palo Alto office’s doors for a pre-conference “Data Hacking Day” on Monday, Feb. 25!
Participants will use Cloudera Impala, the open-source, real-time query engine for Apache Hadoop, to hack on a rich public data set. After forming teams, you’ll compete to see whose project will earn enough votes to win the data-hacking trophy for the day. All members of the winning team will get free hard copies of Eric Sammer’s coveted O’Reilly book, Hadoop Operations.
Pizza/snacks, refreshments, VMs, install support, and cluster time will all be provided. Plus, you’ll get a free Impala T-shirt!
12-1pm – Lunch & Introduction
1-1:30pm – Installation & Configuration
1:30-5pm – Data Hacking
5-6pm – Presentations & Voting
This event is capped at 80 registrations, so jump in!
