Hadoop + JavaScript: what we learned

A session at Strata 2012

  • Asad Khan

Wednesday 29th February, 2012

2:20pm to 3:00pm (PST)

In this session we will discuss two key aspects of using JavaScript in the Hadoop environment. The first one is how we can reach to a much broader set of developers by enabling JavaScript support on Hadoop. The JavaScript fluent API that works on top of other languages like PigLatin let developers define MapReduce jobs in a style that is much more natural; even to those who are unfamiliar to the Hadoop environment.

The second one is how to enable simple experiences directly through an HTML5-based interface. The lightweight Web interface gives developer the same experience as they would get on the Server. The web interface provides a zero installation experience to the developer across all client platforms. This also allowed us to use HTML5 support in the browsers to give some basic data visualization support for quick data analysis and charting.

During the session we will also share how we used other open source projects like Rhino to enable JavaScript on top of Hadoop.
