February Meeting: Jon Boulineau - Hadoop for SQL Server Pros

Language: English
Event Type: In-Person
Online Meeting URL: None

Topic: Hadoop for SQL Server Pros
What is Hadoop? Why is it getting so much attention? How will it impact my career?  For many data professionals Hadoop remains a new technology that is often talked about, but rarely encountered.  This demo-heavy session will demystify this high profile data platform by reviewing it's architecture, ecosystem of open source projects, and seeing it in action.
