Alan Gates CHUGs HCatalog in Windy City (Chicago Hadoop User Group) by Kim Truong
From the post:
Alan Gates presented HCatalog to the Chicago Hadoop User Group (CHUG) on 9/17/12. There was a great turnout, and the strength of CHUG is evidence that Chicago is a Hadoop city. Below are some kind words from the host, Mark Slusar.
On 9/17/12, the Chicago Hadoop User Group (CHUG) was delighted to host Hortonworks Co-Founder Alan Gates to give an overview of HCatalog. In addition to downtown Chicago meetups, Allstate Insurance Company in Northbrook, IL hosts regular Chicago Hadoop User Group Meetups. After noshing on refreshments provided by Hortonworks, attendees were treated to an in-depth overview of HCatalog, it’s history, as well as how and when to use it. Alan’s experience and expertise were an excellent contribution to CHUG. Alan made a great connection with every attendee. With his detailed lecture, he answered many questions, and also joined a handful of attendees for drinks after the meetup. CHUG would be thrilled to have Alan & Hortonworks team return in the future!” – Mark Slusar
What a great way to start the weekend!
