Thanks to the speakers for providing insight in their projects and thanks to Cloudera for sponsoring the videos.

September 2009 Hadoop Get Together Berlin

2009-08-17 09:11
The newthinking store Berlin is hosting the Hadoop Get Together user group meeting. It features talks on Hadoop, Lucene, Solr, UIMA, katta, Mahout and various other projects that deal with making large amounts of data accessible and processable. The event brings together leaders from the developer and user communities. The speakers present projects that build on top of Hadoop, case studies of applications being built and deployed on Hadoop. After the talks there is plenty of time for discussion, some beer and food.

There is also a related Xing Group on the topic of building scalable information retrieval systems. Feel free to join and meet other developers dealing with the topic of building scalable solutions.


Please see upcoming page for updates.

  • Thilo Götz: JAQL
  • Uwe Schindler: Lucene 2.9
  • Ad Recommendation with Hadoop
  • T. Schuett: Solving puzzles with Hadoop.

If you yourself would like to give a presentation: There are additional slots of 20 minutes each available. There is a beamer provided. Just bring your slides. To include your topic on this web site as well as the entry, please send your proposal to Isabel.

After the talks there will be time for an open discussion. We are going into a nearby restaurant after the event so there will be plenty of time for talking, discussing and new ideas.
