We make so much use of HBase at Sematext, we felt the need to start a New York City HBase Meetup – HBase NYC. We just created the meetup, but there are already over 40 members. We do not have any meetups scheduled just yet, but have a few initial ideas. If you are in New York and have interest in HBase, this is the meetup to join. If you would like to host the meetup or if you would like to present please let us know. Presentation suggestions are very welcome, too!
