An Introduction to Hadoop Presented by Christophe Bisciglia, founder of Cloudera and Tom White, author of Hadoop: The Definitive Guide

In this webcast, Cloudera founder Christophe Bisciglia and O'Reilly author Tom White will provide an introduction to Hadoop/MapReduce, the open source project that allows organizations to process, store and analyze massive application datasets. Hadoop, which some are calling the killer app for the cloud, already serves as the data processing engine behind some of the world's largest and most popular Internet businesses including Google, Yahoo! and Facebook. Bisciglia and White will cover the most frequently asked questions about Hadoop / MapReduce as well as tips to designing, deploying, and maintaining a Hadoop cluster.

===================
Christophe Bisciglia joined Cloudera from Google, where he created and managed their Academic Cloud Computing Initiative. Starting in 2007, he began working with the University of Washington to teach students about Google's core data management and processing technologies - MapReduce and GFS. This quickly brought Hadoop into the curriculum, and has since resulted in an extensive partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF) which makes Google-hosted Hadoop clusters available for research and education worldwide. Beyond his work with Hadoop, he holds patents related to search quality and personalization, and spent a year working in Shanghai. Christophe earned his degree, and remains a visiting scientist, at the University of Washington.

Tom White has been an Apache Hadoop committer since February 2007, and is a member of the Apache Software Foundation. He works for Cloudera, a company set up to offer Hadoop support and training. Previously he was as an independent Hadoop consultant, working with companies to set up, use, and extend Hadoop. He has written numerous articles for O'Reilly, java.net and IBM's developerWorks, and has spoken at several conferences, including at ApacheCon 2008 on Hadoop. Tom has a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a Master's in Philosophy of Science from the University of Leeds, UK.
