Not long ago, Ryan Simpkins proclaimed...
> Hadoop is an open-source MapReduce framework inspired by Google's MapReduce
> and Google File System (GFS) papers. It's used to process "Big Data"
> (petabytes) by distributing work across tens, hundreds, or thousands of nodes
> in a cluster. Hadoop is used by Google, eBay, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!,
> Adobe, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Intel, Tynt, and many other notable shops with
> Big Data processing requirements.
> About the Presenter:
> Bryan Sant is a high school dropout who's been writing software professionally
> since the ripe age of 15. He's worked with a lot of software that manipulates
> Big Data for various companies. Bryan is currently working with the Canadians
> to take over the world. Occasionally Bryan gets paid to hurt people in front
> of large crowds.
