LA Hadoop

Great attendance at the Los Angeles Hadoop Users Group (LA Hug) meetup last night on "Productizing Hadoop." Cloudera provided a great speaker to discuss the do's and don't's of migrating hadoop from play/development to full enterprise mode ( from hunter gatherer to modern city). The Hadoop infrastructure has come a long way since my first LA hadoop meetup 1+ year ago -- better support for multi-tenancy with auth and authz, more tools built on top of hadoop, and less need to roll-your-own scripts for everything.

Props to Shopzilla for hosting.

This was a much shyer crowd than we see at LA Perl Mongers (LA.PM). Only one other person asked a question at the end. At PM, we tend to pepper questions and feedback all along the presentation making everything a group production.
