This will be a discussion of Hadoop by Ryan Brown.
<p>Ryan Brown is an engineer (currently at Red Hat) on the
OpenStack Heat and Zaqar projects, which provide orchestration
and messaging for clouds built on open source technologies. He
likes to use (and build) Open Source to automate infrastructure,
and free up time to enjoy the great outdoors (or Netflix if
that's your thing). <br>
<p>In this presentation, we'll take a look at the history of
Hadoop from its beginnings in the MapReduce paper, then dive in
to the current ecosystem. Modern Hadoop (and friends Spark,
Hive, and Impala) can go beyond traditional map/reduce workloads
and provide analytics like fraud alerts as they happen. <br>
<p> The talk will include a case study of a company that's built
tools around Hadoop to integrate with the rest of their

parking lots. No permit is required after 3:00 PM. <br>
<p>We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing.
Let's set 7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk
starting at 7:15. <br>
<p><b>Special note from Charlie:</b> I let the TV weather
discussion scare me into calling off the November 12 session.
I'm not sure how well I did at notifying people. If you care to
send me a phone number (<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"
target="_blank" rel="nofollow">email@example.com</a>), I will
call you if this happens again. If you do this, let me know if
it is a cell number; in that case I will send a text. I promise
not to give anyone else your number and it is very unlikely I
will use it for any other purpose.</p>
