Viewers will learn about the current state of the HBase project. We’ll review what the community is contributing, some of the more interesting production installs, killer apps on HBase, the on-again, off-again HBase+HDFS love affair, and what the near-future promises. A familiarity with BigTable concepts and Hadoop is presumed.
