On December 7, SARA (the Dutch National High Performance Computing and e-Science Support Center) organizes a day-long hackathon to kick-off a Proof-of-Concept Hadoop service, and give the opportunity to experiment with Hadoop with support of experienced users. People who are interested can work with Hadoop on a case of choice, or only play with datasets like Wikipedia, the ENRON dataset, White House visitor records, Genome data or others.

Well-attended SARA Hadoop Hackathon on December 7
On December 7, a total of 47 participants from 23 different organizations attended the SARA Hadoop Hackathon at Science Park Amsterdam. It was the first Hadoop related event organized by SARA, and considering the enthusiasm displayed by the participants a follow-up event might be announced in 2011.
