Hadoop in London
August 19th there will be a Hadoop workshop somewhere in East London which some of my colleagues are helping to organize. Details can be found here. Further announcements will follow. The speakers include Doug Cutting (works at Yahoo and leads the Hadoop project). Johan and Martin will be talking about how we use Hadoop at Last.fm. Applications at Last.fm range from counting how many users listened to an artist to learning from skipping behaviour to improve our radio streams.
