YoDB #5: Big Data Special

The first YoDB meet-up of 2016 will be held on Thursday February 25th and is a peek in to the future for us crusty old RDBMS people. The venue is upstairs in The Adelphi Hotel in Leeds city centre, we have switched to Thursday for this event.

The first speaker is Alice Kaerast from Sky Betting and Gaming who will be discussing distributed database query optimisation in Hadoop, specifically discussing Impala and Parquet.

This will be followed by a talk from Tanel Poder (@tanelpoder) of Gluent. The topic of his talk will be connecting Oracle and Hadoop.

Agenda:

18:30: Meet and greet
18:55: Introduction
19:00: Distributed Database Query Optimisation - Alice Kaerast
19:45: Networking (i.e. refresh your glasses)
20:00: Connecting Oracle and Hadoop - Tanel Poder
20:45: AOB, close, networking until 21:30

We'll also hang around downstairs in the Adelphi afterwards for more networking time.
