YARN Meetup at Hortonworks on Friday, Oct 12

Hortonworks is hosting an Apache YARN Meetup on Friday, Oct 12, to solicit feedback on the YARN APIs. We’ve talked about YARN before in a four-part series on YARN, parts one, two, three and four.

YARN, or “Apache Hadoop NextGen MapReduce,” has come a long way this year. It is now a full-fledged sub-project of Apache Hadoop and has already been deployed on a massive 2,000 node cluster at Yahoo. Many projects, both open-src and otherwise, are porting to work in YARN such as Storm, S4 and many of them are in fairly advanced stages. We also have several individuals implementing one-off or ad-hoc application on YARN.

This meetup is a good time for YARN developers to catch up and talk more about YARN, it’s current status and medium-term and long-term roadmap.

Agenda includes:

  • YARN committers from Yahoo will present on current YARN deployments at Yahoo, including lessons learned, stability, etc.
  • Hortonworks YARN committers will talk about upcoming features such as RM Restart, Container Re-use for MR, Multi-resource scheduling etc.
  • Chris Riccomini from LinkedIn will talk about his experiences building new applications on top of YARN.

A WebEx session will be available, so attendees from all over the world can participate. Follow the meetup page for more information and updates to the agenda.

If you would like to add to the agenda, please get in touch with Arun, or leave a comment in the meetup page.
