And we are just about done with this week. But not quite – dig into the conversation from the past few days.

Hadoop Summit. We published the vast majority of sessions (70 so far) for the Hadoop Summit in San Jose, 26-27 June. The sessions stretch across 7 tracks from Architecture to Economics and we hope you can join us for THE Hadoop community event of the year. You can register here, and the schedule is here.…

Some news from the UK as Yahoo! Hack Europe welcomed Hortonworks this past weekend in central London.  This two-day event sponsored by Yahoo! was focused on celebrating collaboration, learning and innovation using the worlds leading technologies.  Chris Harris, our local EMEA Solution Engineer was on hand to add to the discussions.  Partnering with Microsoft, we were able to showcase our HDP on the Azure platform.  This was a fantastic opportunity for the 350 delegates to be expose to both Azure and enterprise ready Hadoop provided as HDInsight Service.…

Now is the time to get registered for the Hadoop Summit in San Jose, 26-27 June, 2013 – we’d love to see you there. A few weeks ago, we revealed the selectees from the community choice voting, and we’re now delighted to announce the full schedule of sessions is available here.

Session Schedule

Our thanks to the track selection committees and track chairs for the work on building a great schedule for an awesome event.…

Almost time to spend a relaxing weekend in the garden, or crushing some data in your garage-based homebrew Hadoop cluster – whichever you prefer. But before we choose our path, let’s take a look at the last two weeks of happenings (I was lost in Oregon last week).

Hadoop is the perfect app for OpenStack. While I was struggling with driving directions, Red Hat, Marantis and Hortonworks were announcing plans for Project Savanna which aims to automate the deployment of Hadoop on enterprise-class OpenStack-powered clouds. …

The end of another action-packed week and just before we all head off for the weekend then let’s have a recap on the conversations from this week – we hope you’re enjoying them.

We’re delighted by the response to our Hadoop Patterns of Use whitepaper and presentation – that really seems to have struck a chord with everyone thinking about what Hadoop can really do for their business. You can see that content just below here – an excellent read for the journey home.…

Hortonworkers are out there – here is a rundown of events and meet ups we’ll be at in the next couple of weeks and we hope we’ll see you there. Did we miss any? Want us to attend your event? Let us know!

More of a 2 weeks in review this time around owing to the Easter break. So what’s been happening?

Falcon bringing Data Lifecycle Management for Hadoop. The big news this week was the newly approved Apache Software Foundation incubator project – Falcon. The project was initiated by the team at InMobi and engineers from Hortonworks towers with the intent of simplifying data management through a data lifecycle management framework. Something for everyone then. …

The slides and videos from Hadoop Summit in Amsterdam have begun to flow so you can enjoy the sessions.

Whilst you’re thinking about which sessions to watch and read, then we suggest taking a look at the keynotes for the event:
  • What is the point of Hadoop? (VideoSlides)
  • Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Management and Analytics, 451 Research
  • Real-World insight into Hadoop in the Enterprise (Video)
  • Panel featuring HSBC, eBay, Neustar and More
We hope you enjoy these sessions, and the content from the tracks.…

On 27th March, the Wall Street Journal published an article ‘VCs Bet Big Bucks on Hadoop’ and it seems clear that the market is going to be huge. But what does that mean to you and your personal skills investment? Here’s our view:

Hadoop is HOT

Hadoop is incredibly hot right now as the number of available jobs continues to grow enormously (hey – we even have a bunch of our own right here).…

And the voting is over and the results are in for the Community Choice program of the Hadoop Summit San Jose 2013.
