* Python in an evolving enterprise system: Integration solutions with Hadoop

In 2011, we moved our data pipeline to a Hadoop stack in order to enable horizontal scalability for future growth. However, our optimization tools used for data exploration, aggregations, and general data hackery are built in Python. Over the past few months, we evaluated multiple solutions for integrating Python with Hadoop. In our talk, we'll explore the different Python-Hadoop integration options, share our evaluation process and best practices, and invite an interactive dialogue of lessons learned.
