You can find details of previous events on the meetups page.
We regularly organize meetups for Hadoop professionals and enthusiasts, featuring relevant talks about the various components of the Hadoop ecosystem. Just let us know if you would like to present something too.
We always try to get a sponsor for our meetups, so that we can provide free drinks and food to all attendants. Please let us know if you know any companies that might be interested in sponsoring.
