Events and Conferences
There is a lot of interest in Hadoop, in the academic as well as the open source and business communities, which makes for a busy conference schedule.
Key Events and groups
ApacheCon - Main get-togethers for developers of all Apache projects, not just Hadoop-related. Frequently also include code hackathons.
These are get togethers with laptops and coding involved, either in a physical location, or online. Feel free to organize any!
