questions about Hadoop and map reduce this is a great
place to ask them.

Seattle Hadoop Distributing Computing User Meeting
    Bringing Hadoopists Together On the Nth
        Thursday of the Month

We focus predominately on distributed data
processing using a map reduce style. The meetings
are open to all and free of charge. 

When: Thursday December 2nd, 7:00 pm room,  7:15 start - 8:45
Where: University Heights Community Center, Room 110

Outline for December 2nd:

    Apache Mahout:

    Chris will give an introduction to Apache
    Mahout ( http://mahout.apache.org/ ) , a machine
    learning library that runs on Hadoop.  In it he'll
    demonstrate how you can use K-Means clustering to
    group rows of data together and show how this can
    be done with minimal java programming.
    The take away will be that you can start using
    this library soon without much investment.

    Yahoo S4:

        Sean will give an intro and overview of the
    computing model of S4 and how it relates to Dryad
    ( http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/dryad/ )
    and HOP ( http://code.google.com/p/hop/ ). To
    quote the s4 team

            "S4 is a general-purpose, distributed,
        scalable, partially fault-tolerant, pluggable
        platform that allows programmers to easily develop
        applications for processing continuous unbounded
        streams of data."
