With HBaseCon 2013 (Early Bird registration now open!) preparations in full swing, you may be interested in learning a bit about the personalities behind the Program Committee, who are tasked with formulating a compelling, community-focused agenda.

The Cloudera Sessions Across the U.S.: Where Are You on the Road to Big Data?

Organizations of all types and sizes are waking up to the idea that integrating the Apache Hadoop stack into their IT infrastructure solves very common, near-term data management problems. At the same time, deploying Hadoop offers the long-term promise of rapid innovation via Big Data analytics. But, how do you get from Point A to Point Z with the least possible exposure to risk?

Coming to a U.S. city near you, The Cloudera Sessions are single-day, interactive events – with presentations in the morning, and technical breakouts in the afternoon – designed to help you identify where you are on your journey with Apache Hadoop, and how to keep that journey going in a low-risk, productive way. You’ll benefit not only from Cloudera’s experiences with real-world deployments, but also hear directly from some of the Hadoop users who planned and manage them.
