First Topic: Here Piggy Wiggy, Patrick M. Bailey, MS
Associate Professor Computer Science and Information Systems, Calvin College
Looking for a simpler way to work through large volumes of unstructured data with something simpler than Java? Maybe a scripting language low on syntactic overhead? In this talk, demonstrations of the Pig language that works on top of Hadoop will be provided along with how to setup a cluster using Amazon Web Services. Also, considerations in data cleaning of text will be looked at.
