At its core, Hadoop is uncomplicated. Write your programs according to the Hadoop haiku:
Data flutters by Elephants make sturdy piles Number becomes thought.
Using Ruby instead of Java, you can let that simplicity shine through, giving you remarkable improvements in development velocity and resolving power on what's going on on your site. You don't need to learn Java to use Hadoop and you don't have to hire a ops engineer to make it all work. We will show you how to scale your site to the terabytes level while still having fun.
This will be a 40 minute presentation and demo from Infochimps CTO and Big Data guru, Flip Kromer.
