Evert Lammerts Currently working hard on a getting a start-up going, and loving it. Doing big data consulting on the side to stay alive - but only in fun projects! Before 2013 I set up Hadoop services + team at SURFsara, the Dutch center for high performance computing and other academic computing and data services. I'm also lead organiser and founder of the Netherlands Hadoop user group (nlhug.org), was a jury member and organiser of the Peter Norvig Web Data Science Award 2012-2013, and chaired the Operating Hadoop track at the first Hadoop Summit Europe. You can ask me about things related to entrepreneuring, Java, Python, MapReduce, grid computing, Hadoop, bash, and programming and distributed systems in general.
