Re: Did anything interesting come out of the Strata Pig meetup, from a dev perspective?
We got bad video that I'll post, and two sets of slides: Alan's intro
to Pig and Daniel Dai's new features in Pig 0.11. We had TONS of
questions to a panel of three (from the left: Mat Kelcey, Alan Gates,
Doug Daniels), and I will track/comment in JIRA when questioners
aren't able to do so and post a summary here/@user. Many questions
were about low-hanging usability fruit, which is exciting, as they are
(relatively) easy fixes. There was positive feedback about the new
outputSchema API.

I'll post all this stuff once we're airborne.

Other highlights included:

* We flyered for the event all over Strata. I played human billboard.
* The flyers promised Cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery
* We had almost 100 ppl in attendance
* We had enough cupcakes to go around (thanks to Kim Truong from
Horton marketing)
* Mortar Data will continue to organize NYC meetups, and we'll
continue to sponsor those as well
