Zattoo’s Marshall Weir will be talking at this week’s MichiPUG (Thursday evening at 7PM at SRT Solutions in downtown Ann Arbor). In his own words:
I’ve been working on a python module for running reports in Hadoop. Its sort of a wrapper around the pig data processing language and some smarts for running reports on a hadoop cluster and pushing and pulling data to it. It’s designed primarily to make it easier and more efficient to run complex sets of interdependent reports – I’ve been using it to do business reporting on our customer behavior at Zattoo.
This should be very interesting for folks like me who have never seen Hadoop in action!
