You can't open a magazine (electronically or otherwise) without seeing information about Big Data today. This presentation aims to introduce the topic of Big Data, but with the twist that it's by a developer for developers. In this session, we look at A Coder's Introduction to Big Data. We will discuss the topic and some of the key numbers that make it so important today, then we'll get up and running quickly to discuss the WordCount examples ("Big Data's Hello World Application") in multiple Big Data toolsets. After this short introduction, I will show you how to burst to the cloud with a multinode cloud environment and process data using HDFS and MapReduce. The software used in this presentation (not the cloud providers themselves) will be Free and Open Source Software available to anyone with an Internet connection. So come join us... kick back and enjoy as we dive into Big Data. I promise you won't need the courage of a Lion to get through it.
