On the contrary I would say. I have been reading about Hadoop and similar
technologies and have read a lot about Disco, it being the chosen solution
by Nokia if I am not wrong. With an Erlang back-end and jobs written in
Python, it is a great tool.
I have been trying to learn it in deep, but not found a reason apart
from academic interest. So, a talk on Disco from my perspective
is just perfect. I am sure there are others who share similar opinions.
Please submit it.
