My friend Dekel Tankel sent me some information about the next Hadoop user group, which takes place at the Yahoo campus in Santa Clara on Wednesday, October 21, 2009. Sounds like an interesting line up and agenda:
6-6:15 - Socializing and Beers
6:15-6:45 - Mumak - Using Simulation for Large-scale Distributed System Verification and Debugging
Hong Tang - Yahoo!
Large-scale distributed systems such as MapReduce are notoriously hard to verify & debug. An effective approach to address many of these challenges is through simulation. In this talk, I am going to present Mumak, a MapReduce simulator, including its design and implementation, early experience how it is useful, and point out some future work.
6:45-7:15 - Cloudera Desktop in Detail
Philip Zeyliger, Cloudera
7:15-7:45 - Karmasphere Studio: A graphical IDE for Hadoop
7:45-8:00 Q&A and Open Discussion
