Here are a couple event reminders from the Cloudera website.
Web 2.0 Expo 2009
Scaling with Your Data: An Introduction to Hadoop
March 31, 1:00 PM, 2009, San Francsico , California
Cloudera will provide a tutorial aimed at producers and users of large volumes of data. Do you deal with TBs on a regular basis? Are traditional databases not doing what you need? Are your challenges related primarily to processing and analyzing data, rather than simply finding it? Hadoop and MapReduce might be just what you need.

MySQL Conference & Expo 2009
MapReduce + SQL Using Open Source Software and Tools
April 20, 1:30 PM, 2009, Santa Clara , California
Cloudera will host a tutorial on using Hadoop with MySQL. We will go over how to combine MapReduce and SQL to perform more in depth analysis on your data. Participants will learn how to use Hadoop to extract data from MySQL (and other sources), perform arbitrarily complex analysis with MapReduce, and load the results back into MySQL so they are available to existing systems.
