Developer Happy Hour with Cloudera: Building Hadoop 2 Applications

Join us at Cloudera’s San Francisco office on Feb. 20 for tech talks, T-shirts, and adult refreshments!

As an extension of the DeveloperWeek Conf & Festival 2014 experience in San Francisco next month, join us at Cloudera’s San Francisco office for a Developer Happy Hour (beer + tech talks), focusing on Apache Hadoop 2 application development. Anyone (attendees or non) is free to attend, but RSVP now because seats (and “Data is the New Bacon” T-shirts) are limited!

Meet the Book Authors: Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed on ZooKeeper

ZooKeeper book

Flavio Junqueira (PMC Chair of the Apache ZooKeeper project and a member of the Systems and Networking Group at Microsoft Research) and Benjamin Reed (PMC Member and Software Engineer at Facebook) are the co-authors of the new O’Reilly Media book ZooKeeper: Distributed Process Coordination. We had a chat with Flavio and Ben recently about the rationale for writing the book, and what it will add to the distributed systems conversation.

This Month in the Ecosystem (November 2013)

Welcome to our fifth edition of “This Month in the Ecosystem,” a digest of highlights from November 2013 (never intended to be comprehensive; for completeness, see the excellent¬†Hadoop Weekly).

With the holidays upon us, the news in November was sparse. Even so, the ecosystem never stops churning!

Things For Which We Are Thankful

Some things for which we are thankful, the 2013 edition (not listed in order):

1. The entire Apache Hadoop community for its constant and hard work to Make the Platform Better,

It’s "Hello World" for Cloudera User Groups!

Since its inception, Cloudera has been an enthusiastic supporter of user groups and meetups worldwide. And now, we’re extending that support yet further, by incubating new Cloudera User Groups (CUGs) in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago area, and New York City.

Unlike grass-roots user groups, which are inherently community-oriented and have no particular vendor preference, CUGs are designed and intended for users of Cloudera Standard (our free offering containing CDH and Cloudera Manager) and customers of Cloudera Enterprise (our paid, supported offering containing CDH, Cloudera Manager, and enterprise functionality such as rolling upgrades and Cloudera Navigator). For that reason, I predict that CUG conversations will tend to focus on the differentiated aspects of the Cloudera platform.

This Month in the Ecosystem (October 2013)

Welcome to our fourth edition of “This Month in the Ecosystem,” a digest of highlights from October 2013 (never intended to be comprehensive; for completeness, see Hadoop Weekly).

For generating sheer excitement, that month installed a high bar to meet in the future:
