Hey Hadoop Fans, after working with the ApacheCon organizers, it's clear there is way more interest in Hadoop than can fit into a single day - even with it's own track. Specifically, there were a lot of great talks from sub projects that didn't make the final schedule, and it's clear there are all kinds of great ideas to convey with some shorter format talks.
To that end, we're putting together a meet up at ApacheCon US to enable more information exchange amongst the growing Hadoop community. The first thing we'd like to do is choose a date that works well for participants. Monday and Thursday are both viable options, and one falls before the Hadoop track (Wednesday) and one after. We can see advantages to both... If you have a preference, please let us know by next Wednesday. So, if you are going to be around, please let us know which date you'd prefer by filling out this very short form: https://spreadsheets.google.com/a/cloudera.com/viewform?hl=en&formkey=dDczc251N1ZLVUlfMS05d3RDRDFxemc6MA.. Cheers, Christophe P.S. Please notice there are two periods (..) at the end of the form URL. This confuses some mail readers, so if the form acts funny, you may need to copy/paste the URL directly.
