I am happy to say the first Hadoop User Group has already been opened in Stockholm, Sweden. We are really excited to see that Hadoop community in Stockholm is so thriving. Actually, the meetup generated pretty big interest and in consequence almost 150 people attended the event!
The meetup was organized in the Cafeteria at Spotify, and two talks were delivered.
- The up-to-date introduction to Apache Hadoop (including new features like HDFS Federation, NameNode HA and YARN), by Adam Kawa (Spotify)
- Hadoop at Spotify, by Wouter de Bie (Spotify)

We are looking forward to the next meetups, and we hope that such meetings become a regular event in Stockholm!
