SARA organizes Hadoop hackathon

On December 7, SARA (the Dutch National High Performance Computing and e-Science Support Center) organizes a day-long hackathon to kick-off a Proof-of-Concept Hadoop service, and give the opportunity to experiment with Hadoop with support of experienced users. People who are interested can work with Hadoop on a case of choice, or only play with datasets like Wikipedia, the ENRON dataset, White House visitor records, Genome data or others.
