We're organizing a hackathon in Ottawa on August 13th that might be
interesting for people on this list. It's free, we have food and you

We give you free access to a cluster with up to 500 nodes, provide
tutorials for using Mapreduce and Hadoop and hands-on support from
experts. You can of course use Ruby, for example using Mandy (http:// You can read more
about our past events on

More info and registrations on It's free
and our sponsors are providing the food! Yey!

If you have any questions you can email me or write on our Convore
