We have two interesting talks scheduled this month (oh wait, that’s every month).
John Leach will be talking about Hadoop and HBase. John runs the St. Louis Hadoop User’s Group and is currently working on a cloud-based Hadoop marketing platform. Hadoop is the Apache project for distributed storage and map/reduce and HBase is a BigTable-like database platform built on top of Hadoop.
David McNeil will be talking about “Building a DSL in Clojure For Controlling a Lego MindStorm/ Arduino Robot”. As you might notice Lego MindStorm and Arduino are different platforms so this is really a talk about creating abstractions in Clojure. And robots. Robots!
Many thanks to Cloudera for sponsoring this month’s meeting. If you’re interested in learning more about Hadoop, our very own Tom Wheeler is now working as an instructor for Cloudera and will be doing a class right here in St. Louis at the end of February.
