Subject Apache Hadoop Get Together Berlin - December 2009
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 00:35:28 GMT

As announced at ApacheCon US, the next Apache Hadoop Get Together Berlin is 
scheduled for December 2009.

When: Wednesday December 16, 2009  at 5:00pm 
Where: newthinking store, Tucholskystr. 48, Berlin

As always there will be slots of 20min each for talks on your Hadoop topic. 
After each talk there will be a lot time to discuss. You can order drinks 
directly at the bar in the newthinking store. If you like, you can order 
pizza. We will go to Cafe Aufsturz after the event for some beer and 
something to eat.

Talks scheduled so far:

Richard Hutton ( "Moving from five days to one hour." - This talk 
explains how we made data processing scalable at The company's core 
business is online advertisement targeting. Our servers receive 10,000 
requests per second resulting in data of 100GB per day.

As the classical data warehouse solution reached its limit, we moved to a 
framework built on top of Hadoop to make analytics speedy,data mining 
detailed and all of our lives easier. We will give an overview of our 
solution involving file system structures, scheduling, messaging and 
programming languages from the future.

Jörg Möllenkamp (Sun): "Hadoop on Sun"
Abstract: Hadoop is a well known technology inside of Sun. This talk want to 
show some interesting use cases of Hadoop in conjunction with Sun 
technologies. The first show case wants to demonstrate how Hadoop can used to 
load massive multicore system with up to 256 threads in a single system to 
the max. The second use case shows how several mechanisms integrated in 
Solaris can ease the deployment and operation of Hadoop even in non-dedicated 
environments. The last usecase will show the combination of the Sun Grid 
Engine and Hadoop. Talk may contain command-line demonstrations ;).

Nikolaus Pohle (nurago): "M/R for MR - Online Market Research powered by 
Apache Hadoop. Enable consultants to analyze online behavior for audience 
segmentation, advertising effects and usage patterns."

We would like to invite you, the visitor to also tell your Hadoop story, if 
you like, you can bring slides - there will be a beamer.

A big Thanks goes to the newthinking store for providing a room in the center 
of Berlin for us. Another big thanks goes to StudiVZ for sponsoring videos of 
the talks. Links to the videos will be posted here as well as on the StudiVZ
