Next Stops for The Cloudera Sessions: Jersey City, Miami, Denver, Milwaukee

Cloudera Sessions

In its first leg of its tour of the United States earlier this year (see photos here), The Cloudera Sessions proved to be an invaluable single-day event for business and technical leaders exploring practical applications of Apache Hadoop. So valuable, in fact, that we’ve extended the tour with dates/cities this September and October.

Customer Spotlight: Hear from eBay, LiveRamp, Comcast, and OCLC at Cloudera Sessions

We’re kicking off the second leg of our Cloudera Sessions roadshow this week, starting in San Francisco on Wednesday and Philadelphia on Friday. The spring series of the Cloudera Sessions was a big hit, which is why we’re back with a new and improved agenda for the fall, to offer even more options that will help attendees — ranging from developers to line-of-business managers and executives — navigate the Big Data journey. The expanded fall series agenda includes an application development lab (based on CDK) that coincides with the general session throughout the morning, and two tracks for clinics after lunch.

One portion of the general session that was a big hit throughout the spring series and that will return this fall is the Fireside Chat, during which the Cloudera executive host sits with one or two customers to talk about their “real life” experiences and lessons learned with Apache Hadoop. The Fireside Chat gives local customers an opportunity to showcase the work they’re doing, and allows attendees to hear from real users what worked, what didn’t, how they got started with Hadoop, and best practices learned along the way.

The HBaseCon 2013 Afterglow

HBaseCon 2013 is in the books. Thanks to all our speakers, sponsors, and attendees! A great time was had by all.

For those of you who missed the show, session video and presentation slides (as well as photos) will be available via hbasecon.com in a few weeks. (To be notified, follow @cloudera or @ClouderaEng.) Although it’s not quite as good as being there with the rest of the community, you’ll still be able to partake from the real-world experiences of Apache HBase users like Facebook, Box, Yahoo!, Salesforce.com, Pinterest, Twitter, Groupon, and more.

HBaseCon 2013: "Case Studies" Track Preview

HBaseCon 2013 is this Thursday (June 13 in San Francisco), and we can hardly wait!

HBaseCon 2013: "Ecosystem" Track Preview

Unbelievably, HBaseCon 2013 is only one week away (June 13 in San Francisco)!

HBaseCon 2013: "Internals" Track Preview

As we march toward HBaseCon 2013 (June 13 in San Francisco), it’s time to bring you a preview of the Internals track (see the Operations track preview here) — the track guaranteed to be of most interest to Apache HBase developers and other people tracking the progress of the code base.

HBaseCon 2013: "Operations" Track Preview

As you have probably learned by now, HBaseCon 2013 sessions are organized into four tracks: Operations, Internals, Ecosystem, and Case Studies. In combination, they offer a 360-degree view of Apache HBase that is invaluable for experts and aspiring experts alike. In the next few posts leading up to the conference (June 13 in San Francisco – register now while there’s still room), we’ll offer sneak previews of what each track has to offer.
