Talks mentioning Dumbo

April 28, 2009

Presumably, most of you have seen the slides from my lightning talk about Dumbo at the first HUGUK already, since they’ve been featured fairly prominently on the wiki for quite a while now. However, if you’re eager to find out more about Hadoop in general, how Dumbo relates to it exactly, and why and in what ways Dumbo is currently being used at, you might also want to have a look at the following talks:

  • “Hadoop at Yahoo!” by Owen O’Malley [slides]
  • “Hadoop Ecosystem Tour” by Aaron Kimball [slides, video]
  • “Practical MapReduce” by Tom White [slides, video]
  • “Lots of Data, Little Money” by Martin Dittus [slides, video]

If you’ve still not had enough after going through all these slides and videos, you could also have a peek at the slides from my HUGUK #2 lightning talk, in which I briefly explained why we’ve recently been putting some effort in making Dumbo programs run faster.
