Welcome Data Huggers!

Please join me for an evening focused on Hadoop and Big Data at Hy-Vee's HST center in Grimes!  The address is 3801 S. James Street Suite 400 Grimes, IA 50111.  The entrance is the farthest doors to the South.

HortonWorks is sponsoring and Bill Preachuk will be presenting.

Bill Preachuk is employed by Hortonworks as a Hadoop Solutions Engineer. 

He is also a SQL Server MCTS with plenty of years spent in the SQL Server DBA/Developer/EDW trenches. Bill has been in IT since 1991 and has presented at PASS Summit, multiple SQL Saturdays, and PASS/Hadoop/Analytics User Group meetings in the Twin Cities, Wisconsin, Iowa, Winnipeg, and Ukraine.  He also served 2 years on the Board of PASSMN - The Minnesota SQL Server User Group.

Topic: SQL in HDInsight/Hadoop

Azure HDInsight lets you spin up an enterprise-class PaaS Hadoop cluster in minutes. But once you have the cluster, what can a SQL Server database professional do with it?  In this session you will learn all about the the big 3 SQL data access applications found in Hadoop & HDInsight - Hive, Phoenix, and SparkSQL. We’ll discuss their respective engines, how they work, how each differs from SQL Server, and when/why you should choose each tool to accomplish specific use cases. This will include demos, scripts/DDL, and ample time for Q&A.

 Space is limited, so please register only if you can attend.

I hope to see you all there!
