Building Scale Free Applications with Hadoop and Cascading

Accepted Session
Short form
Scheduled: Wednesday, June 17, 2009 from 5:00 – 5:45pm in St. Johns


A rapid introduction to Hadoop architecture, MapReduce patterns, and best practices with Cascading.


Many more applications are suitable to be built on Apache Hadoop than many developers realize.

In this presentation, we hope to give attendees enough information on how Hadoop works, how MapReduce can be leveraged to perform common and well understood data processing operations, and how the Cascading open-source project helps developers rapidly build sophisticated Hadoop applications that can be simply tested locally and executed remotely.
