Cloudera Developer Blog · Community Posts
Continuing the fine tradition of Clouderans contributing books to the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, Apache Sqoop Committers/PMC Members Kathleen Ting and Jarek Jarcec Cecho have officially joined the book author community: their Apache Sqoop Cookbook is now available from O’Reilly Media (with a pelican the assigned cover beast).
The book arrives at an ideal time. Hadoop has quickly become the standard for processing and analyzing Big Data, and in order to integrate a new Hadoop deployment into your existing environment, you will very likely need to transfer data stored in legacy relational databases into your new cluster.
Below please find our regularly scheduled quarterly update about where to find tech talks by Cloudera employees this year – this time, for July through September 2013. Note that this list will be continually curated during the period; complete logistical information may not be available yet.
As always, we’re standing by to assist your meetup by providing speakers, sponsorships, and schwag!

What led you to your project idea(s)?
Hadoop Summit convenes next week, and even if you’re not attending, there are a host of meetup opportunities available to you during the week.
Here are just a few, and you can find a full list here.
For those of you who missed the show, session video and presentation slides (as well as photos) will be available via hbasecon.com in a few weeks. (To be notified, follow @cloudera or @ClouderaEng.) Although it’s not quite as good as being there with the rest of the community, you’ll still be able to partake from the real-world experiences of Apache HBase users like Facebook, Box, Yahoo!, Salesforce.com, Pinterest, Twitter, Groupon, and more.
HBaseCon 2013 is this Thursday (June 13 in San Francisco), and we can hardly wait!
What do you do at Cloudera (and in which Apache project(s) are you involved)?
Unbelievably, HBaseCon 2013 is only one week away (June 13 in San Francisco)!
As we march toward HBaseCon 2013 (June 13 in San Francisco), it’s time to bring you a preview of the Internals track (see the Operations track preview here) — the track guaranteed to be of most interest to Apache HBase developers and other people tracking the progress of the code base.
Our thanks to Jordan Zimmerman, software engineer at Netflix, for the guest post below about the recently announced Apache Curator (incubating) project.
