There will be a Pig meetup at Strata NYC/Hadoop World, at 6:30PM on Wed, Oct 24th in the Bryant Room of the Hilton New York. This will also be the inaugural meeting of the NYC Pig User Group, which Doug Daniels of Pig contributor Mortar Data was good enough to organize. We look forward to future Pig meetups in NYC!
Hortonworks’ own Daniel Dai @daijy, VP of Apache Pig, will present on new features in Pig 0.11. You can view a summary of JIRA tickets for Pig 0.11 here. New features include the CUBE operator, a new RANK operator, the addition of a DateTime type, speed improvements via SchemaTuple, and many others.
