A few days ago I joined Big Data Solutions Team at 1and1. They have nice offices in Bucharest, but most of all I like the team and the projects.
Besides the fact that I will continue to work with HBase and Hadoop I will also expand in using Lucene, Solr and Mahout. All Apache technologies :).
I plan to use the experience I gain to integrate more functionality in Apache James, first on my list is mail search over HBase.
