As Big Data and Hadoop generate more momentum in the industry I want to be involved in a group that is focused on skill development, sharing and exchange, reference architectures, best practices, industry directions and mind share. So I see tremendous value around having a group that can span companies, user communities and regions for this knowledge sharing and being able to communicate with a broader audience.
The name BigDataOverEasy explains the goal of the group. To be a group focused on Big Data and related technologies, i.e. Hadoop that makes it easier to learn and grow without having to go into the coal mines to extract knowledge or reinvent the wheel. I'd like this group to be about Data Architects, Platform Architects, Administrators, Business Intelligence and Analytics teams and developers who want to share knowledge and experiences and have a group of peers they can exchange ideas with.
This group will not support any recruiters, sales or spamming. Here are some of the ecosystems I will reach out to, to find like minded big data and Hadoop enthusiasts.
- Hortonworks Data Platform
- Red Hat
