In this session we’ll first discuss our experience extending Hadoop development to new platforms & languages and then discuss our experiments and experiences building supporting developer tools and plugins for those platforms. First, we’ll take a hands on approach to showing our experiments and successes extending Hadoop to languages such as Javascript and .NET with LINQ. Second, we’ll walk through some of the developer & developer ops tools and plugins we’ve experimented with in an effort to simplify life for the Hadoop developer across both on premises and cloud-based projects.
