Henry is an engineer at Cloudera, where he has worked for five years on a wide variety of distributed systems. He currently works full-time on Impala, a SQL query engine for data stored in HDFS. Before Cloudera, he worked on ad-hoc networking at Cambridge University. He writes infrequently about databases and distributed systems at http://the-paper-trail.org/
Bryan hacks distributed systems by day, and does almost anything else by night. His interests in percussion and computers began nearly coincidentally over twenty years ago in a small town on the Great Plains. The combination has led to him having strange thoughts about time and coordination.
The San Francisco Chapter would like to give special thanks to Fastly for sponsoring the January meetup.
