On Tuesday, September 25, we hosted a special day-long Hadoop Contributors Meetup at our Sunnyvale, California campus. Much of the early Hadoop development work started at Yahoo, now part of Oath, and has continued over the past decade. Our campus was the perfect setting for this meetup, as we continue to make Hadoop a priority.

More than 80 Hadoop users, contributors, committers, and PMC members gathered to hear talks on key issues facing the Hadoop user community.

Speakers from Ampool, Cloudera, Hortonworks, Microsoft, Oath, and Twitter detailed some of the challenges and solutions pertinent to their parts of the Hadoop ecosystem. The talks were followed by a number of parallel, birds of a feather breakout sessions to discuss HDFS, Tez, containers and low latency processing. The day ended with a reception and consensus that the event went well and should be repeated in the near future.

Presentation recordings (YouTube playlist) and slides (links included in the video description) are available here:

Thank you to all the presenters and the attendees both in person and remote!
