Big Data SIG

The Big Data SIG ... shall do big data things. In Big, grand Fedora style.

Interested? Come hang out and help shape the future of Fedora + Big Data.

Big Data Packages

Existing packages and work in progress

Packages known to already exist in Fedora, as well as those not packaged but have interest, are listed on the Big data packaging wiki page.

Categories

Big data means many things - here are a few of the categories we've identified that have to do with big data:

  • Orchestration
  • Storage
  • Batch Processing
  • Stream Analysis
  • Online processing/analysis

What are we going to do?

Whatever the people who show up and want to do work want to do. :) If you're wondering if this COULD BE YOU, the answer is quite likely YES. But just in case, here's an easily-extended list of what this COULD include:

  • Hadoop. HDFS. NoSQL (enormous list here). Ad-hoc analysis tools. Activity stream processing tools.
  • Packaging of any of the above.
  • Better documenting existing packaging of things we know we already have.
  • Discussion of how to take deploy one of these technologies and do something useful with it, solve problems in your area of interest, etc.

And finally:

  • Deciphering what the heck any of this is, means to anyone, and why it can be useful, and why Fedora is great to use with these technologies.

Participation

There is no formal process for participating; joining the mailing list, hanging out on IRC, or participating in meetings are all fantastic ways to get involved.

Mailing list

IRC

We will likely hang out on irc.freenode.net at #fedora-bigdata.

Haven't used IRC for communication before? More information on how to use IRC is available here.

Meetings

We shall have them, and see how it goes.

First meeting: 2013-03-07, 17:00 UTC.

Where: irc.freenode.net at #fedora-meeting-1.
