If you’re reading this, you should thank GRACE HOPPER
She is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists in history.She wasn’t just an admirable US Navy Officer, but also a computer scientist, who worked on computers BACK WHEN THEY TOOK UP ENTIRE ROOMS! She is a PIONEER, who invented the first compiler, or program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can then be read by a processor. Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by her first compiler.

I've made my twitter account private since this change... I don't need random weirdos following me. Just random weirdos that I like.

"Why would I spend days uploading files to HDFS, writing map reduce jobs for 1 GB of data? When I can spend 5 minutes writing an SQL query and wait 30 seconds for the query to execute."

P.S. Obviously, there are high-TB- or PB-sized datasets where Hadoop, HPCC or similar are called for, but there are plenty of examples to the contrary...
