Where to Find Cloudera Tech Talks Through June 2013

Categories: Community General Hadoop HBase Impala

It’s time for me to give you a quarterly update (here’s the one for Q1) about where to find tech talks by Cloudera employees in 2013. Committers, contributors, and other engineers will travel to meetups and conferences near and far to do their part in the community to make Apache Hadoop a household word!

(Remember, we’re always ready to assist your meetup by providing speakers, sponsorships, and schwag.)

A couple highlights:

  • As follow-ups on Cloudera Impala the open source, MPP query engine that runs natively on Apache Hadoop — Impala architect Marcel Kornacker will be visiting the New York HUG (May 7) and Berlin Buzzwords (June 7). There are several other Impala talks on the list, too.
  • This is a great time of year for the Apache HBase community (especially in Europe), with PMC Member/HBase: The Definitive Guide author Lars George dropping in at NoSQL Matters and JAX in Germany, HBase Committer/PMC Member JD Cryans presenting at GOTO, and HBaseCon 2013 on tap for June 13.

We’ll be sure to update the grid about Cloudera speakers at HBaseCon and Hadoop Summit whenever we have that info!
