Facebook will be hosting a HBase users group in two weeks from today, August 22 @ 6PM. This is a perfect opportunity for people evaluating HBase to meet other users, new HBase users to learn more from others, and existing users to stay up to date on the latest open source developments.
We have a few presentations lined up already:
1. Liyin (Facebook) informs us about the benefits of the just-committed new hfile v2 format
2. Li Pi explains on his findings caching outside the heap
3. Todd Lipcon (Cloudera) expounds on speedups coming we can see in the near future
Please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/hbaseusergroup/events/28518471/ so we can determine how much space we need.
Hope to see you there!
