Executive Video Series: Apache Hadoop and Next Generation MapReduce

The third installment of the Hortonworks executive video series features Arun C. Murthy, co-founder of Hortonworks and VP of Apache Hadoop for the Apache Software Foundation. In this video, Arun shares his view of the power of Apache Hadoop and provides some insight into the future direction of MapReduce, including the ability to support alternate programming paradigms.

If you’re not already doing so, I strongly suggest that you follow both Arun (@acmurthy) and Hortonworks (@hortonworks) on Twitter. You might also want to check out various presentations given by Arun and many of the engineers and executives at Hortonworks now available on Slideshare.net.

If you’re interested in Apache Hadoop training, please note every Developing Solutions using Apache Hadoop class between now and the end of June will include a lunch and learn session with Arun. Of course, you can also attend Hadoop Summit in June to meet the Hortonworks technical and executive team in person.
