There are two HBase meetups planned for January.
The 5th San Francisco HBase User Group hosted by Powerset is a round-table
meeting for users and developers to discuss the most recent release,
features for the upcoming release, and help answer any user questions and
issues. We will have Skype setup so even if you are not local you are
welcome to join in the discussion. When you sign-up, please note that you
will be joining remotely and leave your Skype name.
San Francisco HBase User Group @ Powerset
Wednesday, January 14 @ 4:00PM
The second meetup is the first ever Los Angeles HBase Hackathon hosted by
Streamy. This will not be a meeting for users or those looking for an
introduction to HBase. Rather, developers will get together to tackle some
of the bigger changes in the upcoming 0.20 release with some brainstorming,
whiteboarding, and of course hacking. If you are interested in learning
about the implementation of HBase and what we're working on for the next
release, this will be a valuable event to attend. Unfortunately this format
is not very remote friendly but if you are interested in contributing but
unable to attend please contact me directly.
We'll be going all day Friday and at least part of Saturday depending on
everyone's availability. Streamy is located in Manhattan Beach.

Hope to see everyone at these events!
