  • Hi Tony,

    by tudor lapusan,

    It was an excellent presentation of Apache Hadoop and its related projects : Hive, Sqoop, Oozie, Hbase, etc.
    I started to learn Hadoop two years ago at university and now I'm practicing it at my job.
    I was a pleasure to listen to your video and I think that anyone with some knowledge about MapReduce, HDFS would understand it.
    Best regards,
    Tudor Lapusan.

  • Thanks for the presentation.

    Tony articulated the Hadoop very well. I did hear it about before, but this presentation made me stick around for an hour. Lots of things to take home for further exploration for a Hadoop beginner.
