Intro to Wukong, a Ruby Framework for Hadoop

As Flip Kromer was quoted at the Strata Conference, “Java has many many virtues, but joy is not one of them”. A lot of developers might not think they can use Hadoop simply because they never learned or refuse to use Java.

Wukong allows you to leverage the agility and ease of use of Ruby with Hadoop. The same program you write on your machine can be deployed to the cloud.

In this video at Data Day Austin, Infochimps CTO Flip Kromer walks through how you can get started with Wukong.
