The 4th Hadoop Users Group UK meetup took place last night at the Skillsmatter Exchange.

Aaron Kimball of Cloudera talked about Sqoop, and Tim Sell of Last.fm talked about how they use Hive. Ben “Shevek” Mankin of Karmasphere gave a Lightning talk introducing Karmasphere Studio which looks great, and then I gave a quick overview of Cascalog.

I think the combination of two unfamiliar technologies (Clojure and Datalog) was probably a bit much for most people, but it was good to be able to talk about something new.
