I have been using Hadoop and MapReduce to analyse some huge text logs. It's a great software and I would like to contribute to it.
It'll be very helpful if you could tell me the knowledge prerequisites for contributing to Hadoop.
As far as my background is concerned, I have a decent knowledge of distributed computing. I also have a strong background in Core Java covering concepts such as logging, collections, file i/o, javabeans, localization, reflection, threads and networking.
It'll be great if I am given a chance to work on it.
Note:- I am sorry if this is a wrong group. It was mentioned that this group was meant for developer interactions.
