Mark Grover (Lyft)
Location: Expo Hall (Table 3) Level:
  • Why should we migrate to Hadoop?
  • There is Hadoop, Hive, Sqoop, Flume, HBase, Impala, Oozie, Bigtop and the list goes on. What do each of these projects do? Which one do I use when?
  • How do the various Hadoop ecosystem projects fit in a data pipeline?

I am a committer on Apache Bigtop and have contributed to Apache Hadoop, Hive, Sqoop and Flume that allows me to answer a wide range of questions related to Hadoop and related projects.
