Teaming up with Hortonworks for Packetpig Blog Series
Recently I connected with Russell Jurney @rjurney on Twitter after he posted a couple of tweets related to Packetpig. Russell works for Hortonworks a Big Data Platform company founded by Alan Gates one of the developers of Pig and author of Programming Pig.
I had been following Russell after reading his datasyndrome blog which is an awesome reference for people keen to learn about Big Data and how Pig, Hadoop and NoSQL databases like Cassandra and Mongo can be linked together in pipelines.
Soon after this Russell asked if I would like to collaborate with him on a series of blog posts on the Hortonworks blog. The first of which came out recently.
So check out "Big Data Security Part One: Introducing Packetpig" - I hope you enjoy the post and the series!
