First Munich OpenHUG Meeting
We are trying to gauge the interest in a south Germany Hadoop User Group Meeting. After seeing quite a big interest in the Berlin meetings a few of us got together and decided to test the waters for another meeting at the other end of the country. We are therefore happy to announce the first Munich OpenHUG Meeting.
When: Thursday December 17, 2009 at 5:30pm open end
Where: eCircle AG, Nymphenburger Straße 86, 80636 München ("Bruckmann" Building, "U1 Mailinger Str", map in German and look for the signs)
Thanks to Bob Schulze from eCircle to provide the location, projector and also giving a first presentation on how eCircle is planning to use the Hadoop stack.
We also have Dave Butlerdi giving an overview of his usage of Hadoop.
Finally I will give a state of affairs of the HBase project. What is it, what does it do and how am I using it (since early 2008).
We are also open for everyone who wants to talk about anything related to these new technologies often combined under the rather new term "NoSQL". Take the opportunity to talk about what you are working on and find like minded people to bounce ideas off. This is also why we chose the title OpenHUG for the meeting. While we mostly work with Hadoop and its subprojects we also like to learn about related projects and technologies.
Last but not least there will be something to drink and we will get pizzas in. Since we do not know how many of you will come on such short notice we simply stay at Bob's place and continue or chats over food.
As this is a first meeting in Munich on this topic we called it in a day after the Berlin meeting. Given there is interest we will in the future settle on dates that fit nicely between the Berlin dates so that we have no overlap and you can attend both meetings.
