The MapReduce framework promises to make computing of large sets of data very easy. The approach offers excellent scalability across many computing nodes, and can easily be integrated with existing systems. This session will give an introduction to the basic techniques and ideas behind MapReduce, followed by hands-on examples using Apache Hadoop, a major implementation of MapReduce, and Hadoop's streaming functionality that allows users to write processing jobs not just in Java, but in any programming language, including PHP.

Really liked the talk, very relaxed presenting even under stressing circumstances such as tech issues.

I don't think it should've been marked as hands-on though, more like demo.

Good talk, in depth and really hands-on. Your English accent is good. The big numbers in the beginning worked to inspire awe for the real jobs people do with Hadoop.

good talk! i was afraid that some demo's wouldn't work, but you solved it on the spot, which was impressive. questions answered well. slides were spot-on in terms of timing, effects and use of color to convey your message; haven't seen that in any other presentation.

Very nice and funny talk

Excellent talk, the best I've seen at the day 2. Very good and easy to understand explanation of how Hadoop works and also great live demo. Charisma, way of speaking and presenting on the highest level.

The talk offered an introduction to Hadoop and HadooPHP with some live demos. Even with a headache David delivered a professional and rock solid presentation. JaJa! Well done.

More more! The only talk with really new stuff for me. I wont use it anywhere soon, but loved the talk! Sorry for the rude early leaving while you where answering questions, but had to go.

Good talk, nice slides and even working demos :)
Also fun to see the figures of Facebook, Google and other large companies.
Pitty we had to leave early to catch the train and (still) don't have projects where Hadoop is necessary.

one of the most good talk, probably because of the demo.

One of the best talks/demos on the conference.

Nice and very entertaining talk including a live demo and formula1 qualifying results!
Good thing no country's were invaded this time :).

Kick ass presentation. It certainly evolved in time: at PHPUK it was still in "draft status". At PHPDay it was pretty decent and now it was great.

Now I want to see some spin off talks that deal with some Hadoop specific use cases. There is so much you can do with it, but it's hard to pack it all into a 45 minute talk.

Good job !
