Map/Reduce programming has been around for many years. However, with the recent creation of the Hadoop architecture this technology has become more accessible to the larger community. A growing community of developers, engineers and scientists now rely on this technology to process large community data sets. This presentation will explore practical applications that leverage the power of Map/Reduce programming in the Hadoop world. A short introduction to Map/Reduce and Hadoop explaining how these technologies can and have been used to address practical questions and problems will provide “real world” applications. Challenges experienced and ideas to address them will be discussed.
