New Tech Talk: Hadoop for Rubyists

November 9, 2011 Sean Beckett

Loren Siebert discusses how you can leverage your existing Ruby codebase by building Hadoop Map/Reduce jobs using Hive and plugging in your own custom Ruby mappers/reducers. This is good for Rubyists who want to apply what they know to Hadoop, and good for Hadoop users who don’t want to build MapReduce functionality in Java.
