Why do HR and start ups whine about a shortage of ‘qualified’ C++ or Java software engineer? I know a bunch looking with this example

Why do human resources and start ups whine about a shortage of ‘qualified’ C++ or Java software engineer? I know a bunch looking with this example

I just talked to a recent graduate out of premiere US university. He studied Computer Science with a slant on C++ and Java. He is also a Toronto local with perfect English. Can some lame human resource person please explain to me why you are spreading deceitful information about the shortage of qualified software engineers? He looked for a job for over 4 months to finally get one. He said most recruiters and companies want ‘experienced’ people. Why do you lie as he seemed perfect for any entry level job? Why do you lie to reporters about shortages of software engineers? Why do you lie to politicians? Seriously, I went through this frustration years which I was why I am now self employed.

You are all like crooked car sales men.

P.S. This guy did get a job in some financial software business with Java entry level job.

Where do little web and financial service start ups go for funding? Not quant or HFT shops

So this is where the financial and web startups go for venture capital and angel funding?

They have different shows in New York, San Francisco, SIngapore, and even London. Lots of cool videos too including Quantopian. Oh hold on, I just saw Getco does funding.

It seems there are many start ups now trying to solve the “Big Data” Problem. My own research finds 23 companies Hadoop based products or equivalents. Did any one compare them?

Here are those 23 companies that I came up with 10gen, info bright, karmasphere, platfora, EMC Greenplum, oracle, Unlockdata, continuum, Asterdata, Cloudera, CouchBase, Datameer, DataStax, Hadapt, Hortonworks, HPCC, Hstreaming, MapR, Outerthought, Quantcast, Windows Azure, Zettaset, Rainstore.

Yes, there have been posts, however just because a company has a product the interacts w Hadoop doesn’t mean that their product set overlaps.

Karmasphere’s product doesn’t overlap w EMC or MapR or Cloudera… Where EMC resells MapR yet also has their own Apache release and both compete w Cloudera and HortonWorks…

Then you have other companies trying to make their products relevant like Syncsort.

What do you want to know?

 

 

I would like identify real products from this clutter with a stack solving “Big data” problem.

I’m missing IBM Infosphere Biginisights in the list. No?

IBM who?

 

==

believe me there are more. Especially in Boston. Out of your lsit there are 7 that are real players.

The ‘Big Data’ space is rapidly evolving, with many concepts being tried and new ideas put forward. You can read about not just 23, but more than 150+ such systems, at: http://nosql-database.org/ . Hadoop is by no means theonly story in town.

totally agree with you.
Hadoop is just one approach for solving the big data problem. Not a single knive cuts all – there are other approaches for example for real-time big data analytics like ParStream.
You first need to understand your requirements then you can find the right product.
Happy to discuss your requirements and point you in the right direction.
