Higher Order Languages for Hadoop I - Wukong
Flip Kromer Founder and CTO, Infochimps
Wukong allows you to treat your dataset like:
* a stream of lines when it’s efficient to process by lines, * a stream of field arrays when it’s efficient to deal directly with fields
* a stream of lightweight objects when it’s efficient to deal with objects
No one knows more about Wukong that Flip Kromer.
