Microsoft Big Data Hackathon

My daughter made her hackathon debut at Microsoft’s “Big Data Hackathon” yesterday+today. We used San Francisco parking meter data, map-reduced it with Hadoop and created Meterzilla — a site that helps you identify parking meters that are within walking distance of your destination (based on how many minutes you are willing to walk).

It was fun having my daughter as my team-mate. The best part — we won first place!
