Rating: 0 of 5

The MapReduce framework promises to make computing of large sets of data very easy. An original approach, it 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, including Hadoop's streaming functionality that allows users to write mapper and reducer tasks in PHP rather than Java.

Even though i missed the first part of it, the tutorial was really good. I knew a few things on map/reduce already but learned some new things as well. Well prepared talk along with sample php code as well as vmware image with preconfigured hadoop.

I was late for lunch because the talk took longer than expected! ;-) But... very nice talk! The examples were understandable and helpful to gain an overview of what's happening. Presentation was very easy to follow.
