I made a major career decision two months ago to leave my day job and start Flux7 labs, a consulting and training firm. I made this decision because Flux7 Labs allows me to follow my passion of teaching (providing Big Data/NoSQL trainings) and solving challenges in latest technologies like Hadoop, Cassandra, Twitter Storm, etc. Please visit the LinkedIn profile to learn more.
One of the best parts is that I will have more time and incentive to write blog posts. For those of you who read my post on Linked Lists, I am finally doing a performance benchmark to generate data that proves my points. For those interested in Big Data, I am writing a qualitative and quantitate comparison of different Hadoop distributions out there. Exciting times ahead.
