Please join AgilOne and Doug Cutting, Cloudera's Chief Architect and Hadoop co-founder at the Bay Area Cloudera User Group meetup in Sunnyvale, CA.


 6 - 6:30          Networking

•  6:30 - 6:45     AgilOne presents their Cloudera use case 

•  6:45 - 7:15      Doug Cutting on The Future of Data

In recent years a wide range of new technologies have disrupted traditional data management. We're now in the middle of a revolution in data processing methods. Choosing allegiances in revolution is risky.  In this talk, Doug will present the underlying causes of the revolution and predict how the data world might look once we're through it.


 7:15 - 7:45     Tech talk: Impala: A Modern, Open-Source SQL Engine for Hadoop with Dimitris Tsirogiannis, Software Engineer, Impala Team

The Cloudera Impala project is pioneering the next generation of Hadoop capabilities: the convergence of fast SQL queries with the capacity, scalability, and flexibility of a Hadoop cluster.  With Impala, the Hadoop community now has an open-sourced codebase that helps users query data stored in HDFS, Apache HBase, even Amazon S3 in real time, using familiar SQL syntax.  In contrast with other SQL-on-Hadoop initiatives, Impala's operations are fast enough to do interactively on native Hadoop data rather than in long-running batch jobs.  This talk starts out with an overview of Impala from the user's perspective, followed by a presentation of Impala's architecture and implementation. It concludes with a summary of Impala's benefits when compared with the available SQL-on-Hadoop alternatives.


•  7:45 - 8          Q & A / Networking


Parking: There's a lot at AgilOne (771 Vaqueros) as well as across the street.
