I am the latest entrant to this community. I am from mainframe world and have been working in the black world for last 12 years. I am currently working for HSBC for a Core Banking project and am learning Hadoop as a part of my passion.
With all the intellectuals like you guys around, I am sure it wil be an easy ride for me whenever I am stuck.
Let me introduce myself. I have 14 years of experience. 11 years into IT and initial 3 years into teaching in university and technical instituations. My IT experience mostly speard into java/j2ee technology stack. Since last 2 years I have created an interest in Hadoop and its ecosystem. I had been going through different topics on and off to learn this new technology. But in last 6 to 9 months I have raised a strong passion towards Hadoop ecosystem. The more I am learning I am becoming more passionate. But now the hadoop fever has gone to that extent where I am planning to quit my regular job and become a serious Hadoop developper/consultant.
I am leaving my current company in 2 weeks. After that I will go for CCA 175 cloudera certification. Hope that helps in kick starting my full time career in Data Science.
My name is Hugh Jamieson and I am the Hadoop Principle Engineer at OCLC.org, a non-profit org that serves libraries around the world. We are heavily invested in big data to support the data processes our community needs, processes that previously used to take months to complete! We manage library information at all levels and support sharing of resources at cloud scale. We have a considerable investment in HBase and are true believers.
Like many organizations, we are struggling with the appetite our org has for big data and the velocity at which new projects arrive. We have many clusters arranged around geographical and organizational boundaries, and managing these little beauties is a real chore. We are looking for ways to improve our velocity getting new features and tools into production. We have some roll-your-own utilities for cluster management that simply do not scale. So, we are looking at CM in the hope that it will help us speed up our deployments and make them much less complex.
Like other big data fans, I have no life and seldom see the sun. JK; I love my job. I stumbled upon Hadoop 5 years ago and was completely hooked on its design and capabilities. I have travelled thru many environments, from mainframe to SGI, and I can say I am a total Hadoop fan-boy. Such a nerd.
In my spare time I like to evangelize Scala and Spark, Streaming, performance, reactive programming, and immutability. My favorite color is blue. I have my own cluster in my basement. Yeah, I'm that sad.
This is Arun, and I have around 12 years of experience in IT primarily as a developer and a bit of DevOps as well.
I have worked on Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR platforms as a DevOps engineer.
I am happy to join this community and leverage your knowledge to work around the technical issues that I come across and as well as answer any technical questions based on my knowledge and experience with Hadoop platforms.
Myself a BI Consultant worked extensively in BI reporting, Analytics, ETL of SAP/Oracle and Tableau. I have hands on experience in Cassandra and Hadoop (RDBMS - SQOOP - Hadoop) and would like to get certified in Hadoop sooner, primarily looking for CCP Data Engineer certification.
During spare time i like to read books (biographies, philosophies) and also an avid photographer.
I am a member of many forums like SAP-SCN, Oracle, Stack Overflow, Business Objects, Cassandra etc.
Like other forums i hope i can learn and contribute freely.
Glade to join this community!!!

I'm happy to join the Cloudera community. My name is David Webb and I've been in IT for 25 years as of this writing, starting out as a Windows programmer, continuing to SAP ABAP and functional, and now Hadoop. I'm currently familiarizing myself with Scala and Spark, and with the IntelliJ IDE, while also learning how to administer a Hadoop system.
