Event Details

Interested in learning more about Parquet, an open-source columnar storage format for Hadoop?
Parquet is designed from the ground-up to bring massive storage and performance improvements to analytical computations on Hadoop, and to be easy to integrate into any Hadoop-based computation framework, be it Hive, Pig, Cascading, Impala, Apache Drill, or any other engine.
Please join Twitter's analytics infrastructure team and engineers from Cloudera's Impala and CDK teams to learn about Parquet internals, use cases, road map, and opportunities for integrating into your preferred tool. We look forward to meeting hadoop infrastructure engineers that are facing problems similar to ours, and discussing how Parquet addresses these problems, and what more it could do to help you do that thing you do.
We will have short talks:
  • File Format and Impala Results: Nong Li from Cloudera
  • Java APIs and Twitter Results: Julien Le Dem (@J_) from Twitter
  • Avro and Parquet: Eric Sammer (@esammer) from Cloudera
  • Future Roadmap: Dmitriy Ryaboy (@squarecog) from Twitter
Follow @parquetformat for updates!
Note: pizza, beers and good people (tweeps as we say) will be present!
Note: this is an engineering focused event, no press



What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We're located at 1355 Market St. (between 9th Street and 10th Street) on the 9th floor in the old SF Furniture Mart. If you're taking BART or Muni, exit at Civic Center and walk up Market St (5-10 min walk). There is no bike storage at our office. If you are bringing a bike you must lock on the street at your own risk. 

There are several bus lines (the 6, 71, 21, etc.) that stop right outside of our building. If you're taking Caltrain, get off at the 4th and King station and you can take the Muni 83X bus which goes directly to our office (83X bus runs about every 20-25 mins). 

Coming by car? There is plenty of street parking nearby. There are also a few parking garages near the office. The Civic Center parking garage entrance is on McAllister St, between Polk St. and Larkin St. The lot is open until 12:00 AM 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please check-in on the first floor lobby upon arrival. Once checked-in you will be sent up to the 10th floor for the event. You must have your ticket printed out or available via mobile to attend.
