  1. Very interesting Ryan.

    I will shortly be publishing, on a fortnightly basis, stats on the number of Hadoop jobs (contract or permanent) in the UK, number of applications, number of registered candidates etc. This information will be via Jobserve – see http://www.jobserve.co.uk – a leading job portal in the UK.

    Tracking these stats over time will be a good bell weather of the big data market as a whole.

    I will post these stats on bigdatajobs.wordpress.com

    Regards
