I just saw an invitation to an event you will want to attend if you are an enterprise technologist in the Maryland, Northern Virginia or DC area. The creator of Apache Hadoop, Lucene and many related capabilities, Doug Cutting, will be featured in a session where he will provide context on Hadoop’s movement beyond batch. This talk will provide insights into Cloudera Impala.

Beyond Batch presentation by Doug Cutting

On the heels of last month’s Strata Conference + Hadoop World, please join us on Wednesday, December 5th for a special event with Hadoop creator and Cloudera Chief Architect Doug Cutting. Doug will deliver his keynote presentation, Beyond Batch (please see below for a session description) and will discuss in greater detail Cloudera Impala, which enables real-time, interactive analytical queries of the data stored in HBase or HDFS. Plenty of time will be allocated to Q&A so please bring your questions for Doug.

This event will be held from 6pm-8pm at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Food and beverage will be provided. There is no cost to attend.

Session Abstract
Beyond Batch: Hadoop started as an offline, batch-processing system. It made it practical to store and process much larger datasets than before. Subsequently, more interactive, online systems emerged, integrating with Hadoop. First among these was HBase, the key/value store. Now scalable interactive query engines are beginning to join the Hadoop ecosystem. Realtime is gradually becoming a viable peer to batch in big data.

Doug Cutting, is the creator of numerous successful open source projects, including Lucene, Nutch and Hadoop. Doug joined Cloudera in 2009 from Yahoo!, where he was a key member of the team that built and deployed a production Hadoop storage and analysis cluster for mission-critical business analytics. Doug holds a Bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and sits on the Board (and is currently chairman) of the Apache Software Foundation.
