This wiki page is for suggestions for Strange Loop 2012 "Unsessions". We work hard at Strange Loop to put on a great program but sometimes there are topics that just don't make it to the schedule. During the conference we'll have several rooms reserved for sessions planned by YOU.
Please add topics below and note your interest. We plan to schedule rooms and times by interest, so sessions without as much interest may not fit!
Kathleen Ting, Customer Operations Engineer at Cloudera and committer for Apache Sqoop, will present Seven Deadly Misconfigurations:
Misconfigurations and bugs break the most clusters. Attend this session and leave with the know-how to get your configuration right the first time. In some support contexts, a handful of common issues account for a large fraction of issues. That is not the case for Hadoop, where even the most common specific issues account for no more than 2% of support cases. Hadoop errors show up far from where you configured, making it hard to know what log files to analyze. It pays to be proactive.
Jonathan Hsieh, Software Engineer at Cloudera and committer for the Apache HBase, Sqoop and Flume projects, will present an introduction to Apache HBase:
Apache HBase is a scalable distributed datastore built on top of Apache Hadoop. This low-latency system enables consistent random read/write operations in the Hadoop stack. It is used for analysis and serves live traffic for services such as eBay's search and Facebook's Messages service. This session will provide a high-level introduction about when and how to deploy and build services with HBase. I'll describe the data access interfaces and describe some of the new and upcoming features.
