- ''Under construction...''
+ Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets. Pig's language, Pig Latin, is a simple
query algebra that lets you express data transformations such as merging data sets, filtering
them, and applying functions to records or groups of records. Users can create their own functions
to do special-purpose processing. 
  
- What is this wiki about?
+ Pig Latin queries execute in a distributed fashion on a cluster. Our current implementation
compiles Pig Latin programs into Map-Reduce jobs, and executes them using Hadoop cluster.
