University of Leeds
Leeds, England LS2 9JT

The next WYLUG meeting will be on Monday 9th June 2008 in Leeds University’s EC Stoner Building.

Robert Burrell Donkin is going to give a talk on ‘Hadoop And Friends’:

Leaving clustering behind: scaling grids to utility computing and why this matters. A lightning tour of the emerging open source utility computing nexus: Hadoop, Lucene, Nutch, Solr, SmartFrog, Mahoot, Pig, Hama, Zookeeper. More than Java: a two minute introduction to MapReduce. Catch the wave: why now’s the right time to get involved and how to do it.

The meeting room is sign-posted from the main EC Stoner Building entrance (level 7, the side facing the Parkinson Tower).

The meeting officially starts at 7:00pm, but the room will be open for coffee, tea, biscuits and chat from 6:30pm. Afterwards, we usually go to the Victoria pub, behind the Town Hall, for geeky chatter.
