Subject Re: Apache Hadoop Hackathons: 5/11 and 5/18 in SF and Palo Alto
Date Mon, 09 May 2011 21:36:56 GMT

We've got 23 folks signed up for the Hackathon this Wednesday from
organizations like Cloudera, Facebook, Twitter, AOL, Trend Micro,
StumbleUpon, and Ngmoco. We'll also have the VP of the HBase PMC, Michael

involved in Apache Hadoop, development, now is the time!

We've got room for 10 - 15 more. If you're in San Francisco or Palo Alto and
want to help out with Apache Hadoop development, sign up at
