The third annual Hadoop World conference has come and gone. The two days of conference keynotes and sessions were surrounded by receptions, meetups and training classes, and marked by plenty of time for networking in hallways and the exhibit hall. The energy exhibited at the conference was infectious and exchange of ideas outstanding. Nearly 1,500 people – almost double last year’s number – attended. They came from 580 companies, 27 countries and 40 of the United States. Big data is clearly a global phenomenon.
I want to extend a sincere “thank you” to all the Hadoop World sponsors and presenters. As an important part of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, you continue to drive innovation and adoption in this space. Your support and sharing of your knowledge helped to make this conference the most comprehensive forum for Apache Hadoop.
We know that Hadoop World can be quite the data overload. The conference was packed with a tremendous amount of valuable information and insight. With 60 breakout sessions, many of you are interested in viewing the presentations you could not attend. We are working as quickly as possible to get the presentations online and available. Slide decks from the presentations have been posted and video recordings will be available shortly.
Please visit the Hadoop World 2011 agenda where you will find links to the session slide decks. Once again, thank you for your interest and participation in Hadoop World 2011. We look forward to seeing you in 2012*!
*Dates and location to be determined.
