We’re excited to host the first ever HBaseCon this May 22, 2012 in San Francisco – the industry’s first Apache HBase community conference. The theme of this first HBaseCon is “Real-Time Your Hadoop,” and the conference will be a culmination of the best of the HBase community, including speakers and sponsors from across the HBase landscape.
As Michael Stack, the champion of the HBase community and engineer at StumbleUpon, put it, “It’s going to be a great day out for the community. Anyone with any kind of an HBase itch at all whether apps, ops, or dev should be sure to drop by.”
The call for speakers wrapped up last week and the HBaseCon Program Committee is now parsing through all the submissions to bring you the most interesting and inspiring talks the HBase community has to offer. We will be announcing the speakers later this month.
According to Lars George, solutions architect for Cloudera and author of HBase: The Definitive Guide, “There is a whole ecosystem being created around HBase, and the community is thriving and incredibly involved. HBaseCon will bring the community together in a collaborative and resourceful way, and I look forward to being a part of this first conference.”
We hope to see you there! Early bird registration ends April 6 and there is a discounted price for contributors.
Cloudera will also offer a hands-on HBase training session after the conference, May 23 and 24, 2012 for developers already familiar with Apache Hadoop. For more information: http://www.hbasecon.com/training/
