Happy as a Pig in Muck?


Happy as a Pig in Muck?

This session will take a look at Pig. Pig is a platform for analysing large datasets using a high level language in Hadoop. It is easy to use, intuitive and embarrassingly parallel. It was developed in order to avoid the complexities of Map Reduce. It is useful for ad-hoc analysis and of course ETL. During this session we will see it being used to manipulate structured and unstructured data.

Allan Mitchell is a SQL Server MVP and runs DataRelish with Jen Stirrup. He has worked all over the world helping customers integrate their data and processes. He has implemented large Hadoop installations as well as event stream processing solutions.
