MEETING NOTICE
==============
Central Ohio Linux Users Group

Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 from 7 PM to 9 PM local

Meeting Presentation
==============
Long-time COLUG member Tom Hanlon will present Apache Hadoop, Map
Reduce, HDFS and more. As a platform for distributed computing written
in Java, there is a universe of associated tools: hbase, hive, pig, or
further afield, zookeeper. Tom's presentation will lay the groundwork,
and attendee questions will drive the bulk of the meeting.

Meeting attendees are encouraged to download a virtual machine with
Apache Hadoop pre-installed:
   http://cloudera-vm.s3.amazonaws.com/cloudera-demo-0.3.5.tar.bz2?downloads
It should run in Virtualbox with perhaps a few hoops to jump through.

Or one could grab an RPM install. Tom suggests psuedo-distributed.
Instructions here for RPM or DEB based..

Or one could grab the tarball and install from there. According to Tom:
   VM is easiest.
   RPM or DEB next easiest.
   Tarball is not so hard.

The upcoming meeting is open to the general public, and all with an
interest in Free Software, Open Source, Linux, BSD, Unix, and the like
are invited.

There are no dues or fees.
