It was a bit of a try-out, for everything: Hadoop illuminated LLC as a host, new office on One Riverway for meetups and training, and 'Hadoop for Execs' presentation.
And it all went great: the audience, the accommodations, the materials (mostly composed by Sujee Maniyam), and surely the questions and answers.
It is clear: Houston is thirsting for Hadoop knowledge, and we are going to help: we will host monthly 'Hadoop for Execs' seminars. We only need to decide on the format: should we make it a one-hour whirlwind tour, two-hours overview, or a half-day actual training. Tough question, but nice to have.
