On June 29th, Yahoo intends to bring hundreds of developers together for the Hadoop Summit. And if that sounds interesting – but not so interesting that you want to pay your own way – Yahoo’s holding a very simple contest in which the prizes are tickets.
Stacy Milman explained the procedure on the Yahoo Developer Network Blog. First, “Become a follower of @YDN on Twitter,” then “[k]eep an eye out for the @YDN ‘fun fact’ of the day tweet about Hadoop every Monday, starting today, May 10, and ending Monday, June 21.”
Next, “On the same day, retweet our ‘fun fact’ about cloud computing along with the hash tag, #Y!Hadoop.”
Finally, a drawing held every Tuesday will determine who gets two free tickets.
Enjoy the Hadoop Summit (and the savings) if you win tickets this way.
