Talks scheduled so far:
- The topic of Marc Hofer's talk is: "UIMA scale-out with MapReduce using Apache Hadoop".
- Rasmus Hahn is going to share his experiences with Hadoop from the perspective of his projects at neofonie (http://www.neofonie.de).
Apache Hadoop is a free Java software framework that supports data intensive distributed applications running on large clusters of commodity computers. It enables applications to work with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. Hadoop was inspired by Google's MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers. Hadoop is a top level Apache project, being built and used by a community of contributors from all over the world. Yahoo! has been the largest contributor to the project and uses Hadoop extensively in its Web Search and Advertising businesses.IBM and Google have announced a major initiative to use Hadoop to support University courses in Distributed Computer Programming.  Hadoop was created by Doug Cutting (now a Yahoo employee), who named it after his child's stuffed elephant. It was originally developed to support distribution for the Nutch search engine project.
