Big Data and JRuby

A session at JRubyConf 2011

Thursday 4th August, 2011

11:20am to 11:50am (EST)

"Big Data" is a hot topic these days, and encountering "Big Data" issues and the complexity around them, is a more common occurrence today than it was even a couple of years ago. Understanding what is meant by "Big Data" and some of the tools around it is something every developer should know a little about. Along these lines, One of the amazing things that we benefit from, as developers who use JRuby, is the existing ecosystem of Java libraries and platforms for manipulating Big Data. The most famous, and probably of the most immediate use to rubyists is Hadoop and the Hadoop ecosystem of projects. This talk will touch on "Big Data" and how we, as developers who use Ruby, may be use JRuby within a variety of Hadoop and Hadoop related projects such as HDFS, MapReduce, HBase, Hive, Zookeeper, etc.
