We are inviting again to discuss NoSQL and BigData matters. Stefan Seelmann will show us an example of a real world integration of the two top class (and top-level now)-Projects. You are welcome to bring a short presentation too.
When: 6. May 2010, 18:00, open end. We may get something to eat & drink from the pizza shop around the corner.
Place: eCircle GmbH, 80686 München, Nymphenburger Str. 86.
We set the date for the next meeting now. Its four weeks before the Berlin Meeting, which is in parallel to THE CONFERENCE , so a perfect time to get the right questions together, that can be discussed there.
I’ll post more about the talks later.
Christoph Rupp started with a introduction to his embeddable HamsterDB, a nice and light alternative for BerkeleyDB. Beside a comprehensive feature set, he impressed with strong quality rules that are applied to each release. A embedded fast DB is certainly a different world than the massive scaling we do with Hadoop & Co, but why not imagine the HBase Shards using a really fast embedded piece of C-Code?
Afterwards we had some good discussions in different directions, spanning from Hadoop* up to all kinds of cloud challenges.
This was our second meeting and I still assume there are more data-fighters out there in the munich area. Spread the word!
Looking forward to he next Open Hadoop Users Group Meeting, probably mid-May 2010.
