This month's topic: Apache Drill

Apache Drill is a new Apache incubator project. Its goal is to provide a distributed system for interactive analysis of large-scale datasets. Inspired by Google's Dremel technology, it aims to process trillions of records in seconds. We will cover the goals of Apache Drill, its use cases and how it relates to Hadoop, MongoDB and other large-scale distributed systems. We'll also talk about details of the architecture, points of extensibility, data flow and our first query languages (DrQL and SQL).
