It's time for another Hadoop Happy Hour. This time, we're celebrating the publication of the Apache Sqoop Cookbook by O'Reilly Media.
For those of you not yet familiar, Apache Sqoop is a command-line interface application for transferring data between relational databases and Hadoop. It supports incremental loads of a single table or a free form SQL query as well as saved jobs which can be run multiple times to import updates made to a database since the last import. Imports can also be used to populate tables in Hive or HBase. Exports can be used to put data from Hadoop into a relational database. Sqoop became a top-level Apache project in March 2012.
Once again, we'll be at Lilly Mac's on historic Murphy Avenue in Sunnyvale. Lilly Mac's has great food and appetizers, a great selection of beer and great prices on drinks. There is ample parking a block away, and for those of you who prefer Caltrain, Lilly Mac's is a 5 minute walk from the Sunnyvale Caltrain station.
The fine folks at Cloudera will be picking up the tab for appetizers, so you can come straight from the office , the sofa, or wherever you work.
Also joining us as sponsors will be the fine folks from Planet Pro.
Hope you can join us!
