I’m happy to share the agenda for the upcoming Hadoop Summit – June 29th, Hyatt, Santa Clara.
We received over 70 great submissions for talks. It was a very impressive combination of development tool overviews, application case studies and innovative research.
We had the difficult task of selecting just a handful of presentations from this overwhelming collection of great quality abstracts and speakers. The variety of topics across numerous industry verticals, served as a clear evidence of how far this technology has evolved over the past year. Hadoop is really going mainstream!
Our goal was to create a diverse agenda that covers topics for experienced Hadoop users as well as people who recently began to explore this technology. We wanted to focus on the Hadoop eco-system of tools and solutions as well as “real life” users experience.
I want to thank all the people who submitted talks and encourage speakers that were not selected to submit their great presentations to our monthly Hadoop User Groups.
At Yahoo!, we are embracing Hadoop at the very core of our business. As you will hear at the summit, we are continuing to invest heavily in both the technology and the community to make it even better. We love being at the center of the discussion and debates around Hadoop and learning from other’s experiences.
We are planning to go bigger next year, with a broader event that will allow more opportunities for speakers as well as sponsors.
We hope you all join us at the summit – if you have not registered yet, please REGISTER TODAY!. Space is limited and we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to see the great variety of talks outlined above first-hand.
