Hello my name is John I am a SA that is interested in all this big data stuff. I had my first Hadoop SA class today and it was very cool. It was my first expose to Hadoop so super excited for the course and what the future holds for me. I'm all ready seeking out how to build a cluster in my house. I have been in IT now for 15 years mostly all windows and storage engineering. The last 3-4 years I have turned toward linux administration which has lead me here.

I'm Ben Hemphill, I got my start in IT with Cerner 9 years ago straight out of college. I've been working as a System Engineer/Architect on HDFS, HBase, and many other technologies in the hadoop ecosystem for just over 6 years now.
I enjoy learning new things from wikipedia adventures and practicing a wide variety of skills, from woodworking to electronics to home improvement. To relax I enjoy watching videos, listening to music, and playing disc golf.

I am Sufyan and i have been assiciated with data analytics in Telecom space for around a decade. Majorly i have worked on Data Warehouses along with BI/Campaign Tools on top. I am familiure with Data Warehousing solutions i.e. Teradata, Exadata and Netezza; supported several deployements in different roles i.e. Architect, PM, Consultant etc. Moreover I have experienced the journey of different BI Tools in the industry especially Business Obejcts, Cognos, Location Analytics by Pitney Bowse and OBIEE.
BIG Data being a hot topic in analytics domain has been adopted by my recent company where i have been looking into the solution as Domain Manager. We have deployed BIG Data setup with support of Cloudera as distribution engine. Though tools/components in BIG data space are not matured enough like in any engineered data warehousing environment but they hold excitement as well.
Its good to see this comunity where i expect to get some good/bad experiences around Clouera Implementations and some guidlines for future endeavors.

Hi All, I'm Surya. I'm from development and support background. I started my career with Visual basic and classic ASP programming and then moved to Rapid development using Power Builder tool. Then worked on .NET 1.1 through 4.5 Until 2012. With the change in software market needs, I learnt Microsoft Azure, Linux, Weblogic and WebSphere Administration and Hadoop 1.x.
Out of the new skills, I found hadoop is more interesting with the features of commodity hardware, distributed computing etc. and choose that as new career path.
Presently I'm working as Hadoop Technical Consultant @ Teradata India.

I'm Greg and I've been working with computers in various capacities for about 30 years. From computer operator, to hardware tech, to some programming and currently in a System Admin role. My company put me into a Cloudera class that they taught themselves, I didn't get much out of it since it was geared towards developers and I'm more interested in the admin side of things.
Fast forward 2 years and now I'm being asked to look into getting the CCAH certification due to some upcoming contract bids. That brings me here.
I'm starting from the basics, so hopefully I'll have some intelligent questions for you guys soon.
