The third-annual HBaseCon is now open for business. Submit your paper or register today for early bird savings!
Seems like only yesterday that droves of Apache HBase developers, committers/contributors, operators, and other enthusiasts converged in San Francisco for HBaseCon 2013 — nearly 800 of them, in fact.
Find Cloudera tech talks in Berlin, Budapest, London, Stockholm, Tokyo, and across the US during this calendar quarter.
Below please find our regularly scheduled quarterly update about where to find tech talks by Cloudera employees – this time, for the first calendar quarter of 2014 (January through March). Note that this list will be continually curated during the period; complete logistical information may not be available yet. And remember, many of these talks are in “free” venues (no cost of entry).
Join us at Cloudera’s San Francisco office on Feb. 20 for tech talks, T-shirts, and adult refreshments!
As an extension of the DeveloperWeek Conf & Festival 2014 experience in San Francisco next month, join us at Cloudera’s San Francisco office for a Developer Happy Hour (beer + tech talks), focusing on Apache Hadoop 2 application development. Anyone (attendees or non) is free to attend, but RSVP now because seats (and “Data is the New Bacon” T-shirts) are limited!
In the wake of the Strata + Hadoop World 2013 afterglow, speaker slides and video have been posted. For your convenience, they are aggregated below:
Among Cloudera’s engineer-presenters at Strata + Hadoop World 2013 this week, Philip Zeyliger (“Tricks for Distributed System Debugging and Diagnosis“) was particularly fortunate to have been interviewed by O’Reilly Media editor Meghan Blanchette on camera.
In the following 8-minute interview, Philip offers an overview of common pain points and failures when debugging distributed systems:
For those of you attending virtually/in spirit, I thought it would be nice to bring you a selection of photos from the week so far. Credit goes to Alex Moundalexis (@technmsg) for the majority of these shots.

We are just a weekend away from the Biggest. Strata + Hadoop World. Ever.
As a delicious appetizer for the Strata Conference + Hadoop World next week (sold out!), O’Reilly Media has partnered with us to create and publish a new e-book specifically intended for technical end-users of Cloudera Impala, the open source distributed query engine for Apache Hadoop.
Authored by Cloudera’s own John Russell, the e-book provides a 30-page tour of Impala’s internals and architecture, as well as common usage patterns intended for mainstream (SQL) users.
Customer Spotlight: Learn How Edo Closes the Advertising Loop with Hadoop at Cloudera Sessions Milwaukee
The Cloudera Sessions fall series is coming to a close next week, but first we’ll make a final stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (on Oct. 17), where attendees will hear about edo — a company that is revolutionizing the advertising space by closing the loop between promotions and point-of-sale transactions.
In Milwaukee, edo CTO Jeff Sippel will engage in a fireside chat with Cloudera’s VP of marketing, Alan Saldich. At edo, Jeff is responsible for the strategy, planning, and execution for the systems — including Apache Hadoop — that power the edo offer platforms.
This week’s Cloudera Sessions roadshow will make it to Denver, Colo., on Thursday, where the customer Fireside Chat will feature Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) Chief Architect of Global Enterprise Solutions, Wes Caldwell. ISS helps many government organizations – including several within the U.S. Department of Defense — deploy next-generation data management and analytic solutions using a combination of systems integration expertise and custom-built software.
During the Fireside Chat, Cloudera’s COO Kirk Dunn will engage Wes in a conversation to discuss the business use cases for Hadoop that ISS sees most often in the field, primarily within two buckets: batch analytics and real-time applications. Wes will also share his thoughts on some of the more recent innovations within the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, such as Cloudera Impala and Solr integrations.
