I don’t know how I ended up becoming the head of our local community association. Anyhow, I’m now responsible for laying out next year’s budget. Most of our expenses seem to be fixed from one year to another, but then there’s the expense for the snow removal service. This year, no snow. Last year, most snow on record in 30 years! How do you budget for something as volatile as snow? I need more data!
Instead of just googling the answer, we’re going to fetch some raw data and feed it into Hadoop Hive.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
