Next Sydney GTUG: 

May Sydney GTUG : MapReduce - when to use it, when to avoid.

When: Wed, 23 May 2012 at 6:00pm
Where: Google Sydney, Level 5, 48 Pirrama Street, Pyrmont, Sydney

Speaker:  Adam Horvath

When : Wed 23 May @ 6pm
Where : Google Sydney, Level 5, 48 Pirrama Street, Pyrmont, Sydney

If you have heard of MapReduce and wondered what it is or how you can use it then come along and hear about Adam's experience.

You will hear about :
- What is MapReduce ?
- What is it good for, when to avoid ?
- Some real world examples (with code demos) to show how easy it is to process the data you already have (log parsing, trend analysis, product recommendation based on user visits, etc).
- The whole idea is to show how short the learning curve can be and how easy it is to go to production with your custom data processing.

RSVP via Meetup :

Getting There: It's a quick walk from Town Hall station over the Pyrmont bridge (directions

Go to level 5 or if the doors are locked wait outside and look for google-esque people to let you in. If that doesn't work call Johno Scott 0438 987-782
