Subject Re: Apache Hadoop Hackathons: 5/11 and 5/18 in SF and Palo Alto
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 04:16:28 GMT
Many thanks to Cloudera for hosting today's hackathons!  Under the helpful
guidance of Eli Collins, I submitted my first patch.  It's great to get off
the sidelines and into the game.

+1 for more of these community building events.

Thanks again,
-James Warren
