Cloudera Hosting Hadoop World 2010: Call for Speakers Now Open

Categories: General

Cloudera is once again hosting Hadoop World which will take place in New York City on October 12th. Last year’s event was a fantastic success with 500 very active attendees. The event generated a lot of buzz around Hadoop as organizations demoed and discuss real-world use cases.  This year we are planning for an even bigger and better event and are expecting 800 attendees with more presentations from people working on really important data storage and analysis problems across a range of industries including financial services, telecomunications, government, retail, academia and more. The event will also be an international affair drawing attendees from around the world.

If you are an experienced user of Hadoop then you know you need to be at this event. However, if you are currently hamstrung by Hadoop, perplexed by Pig or overwhelmed by Oozie? Then get yourself along to the Hadoop World conference to hear the leaders in the industry share their insight and vision (and contact us in the meantime to see how we can help your organization with getting up to speed). Cloudera will also be offering training sessions at the conference.

What should you do next? Well apart from signing up here you can also submit your proposal for a breakout session. This is your chance to contribute to the success of the conference and showcase your solution to the Hadoop community. Submit your proposal online until July 17, and please don’t hesitate to submit more than one idea.

More information to come as we get additional details.
