Martijn explained how SQL-on-Hadoop works, again followed by Hands-on exercises. After a quick lunch, the participants were divided in small groups to discuss a more architecture related topic being Hadoop and the Enterprise Data Warehouse. More theory about Spark Streaming and Self Service Analytics were alternated with a a cool Twitter Sentiment Analysis exercise.
