Just wanted to follow up on this and let everyone know that Cloudera and Y! are teaming up to offer two day-long training sessions for free on the day after the summit (June 11th).
We'll cover Hadoop basics, Pig, Hive and some new tools Cloudera is releasing for importing data to Hadoop from existing databases. http://hadoopsummit09-training.eventbrite.com Each of these sessions normally runs about $1000 but were taking advantage of having so much of the Hadoop community in one place and offering this for free at the 2009 Hadoop Summit. Basic training is appropriate for people just getting started with Hadoop, and the advanced training will focus on augmenting your existing infrastructure with Hadoop and taking advantage of Hadoop's advanced features and related projects. Space is limited, so sign up before time runs out. Hope to see you there!
