Hadoop World 2010: An Unqualified Success

Categories: General

Hadoop World 2010 brought together a diverse group of attendees from techies working in the web 2.0 world to traditional enterprises to open source community members to IT industry vendors. The excitement at Hadoop World kicked off the night before with the welcome reception on the rooftop of the Ava Lounge sponsored by Accel Partners. For all that attended you surely remember the sudden lightning and thunder followed by the mad dash indoors. On the morning of Hadoop World attendees arrived as early as 6:30am and you could feel the buzz vibrating throughout the day—evidenced by the Hadoop World hashtag (#hw2010) trending to one of the top 10 tags on Twitter in NYC October 12th. The thirst for Hadoop knowledge is further evidenced by the fact that all but one of the New York Cloudera training sessions sold out.

We thank everyone—all 923 of you—who participated in making it a great event and we hope you got value out of the 42 sessions in addition to the networking opportunities.

YES! the presentations and videos will be available. We’re in the process of collecting them and we hope to get those posted within the next 2 weeks and we will communicate when they’re available.

Our friends at Silicon Angle provided a live broadcast feed that reached close to 100,000 unique viewers throughout the day. Silicon Angle is currently recycling the footage so go to siliconangle.tv to catch their analysis of the event along with individual interviews from presenters, sponsors and other Hadoop heavyweights.

More updates coming soon!
