HUGUK HBase at Mendeley Presentation

Last Friday I gave a talk on how we use HBase at Mendeley, which goes into more detail on the work I’ve been doing over the last year. It’s a summary of how the datamining team started out using MySQL and how and why we moved to HBase for most of our data storage and processing. It also describes some of the work we do in the datamining team.

You can find more details of the talk and a video of the presentation here

The afternoon generally went very well, I met many intresting people in London using Hadoop and HBase. There were also some people from California stopping over in London from a conference in Brussels. So it was great to meet people like Jonathon Gray who is one of the HBase committers working at Facebook and learning how they are using it in their new messaging service, Stack who is another HBase commiter from StumbleUpon, and Tom White who started the whole Hadoop world off. It’s a great community and an intresting time to be part of it.

For more from this event you can see all the slides here and learn more about the UK Hadoop users group I’ll now be runnning
