We are now less than a month away from the kickoff of Hadoop Summit Europe, taking place March 20-21 in Amsterdam. The excitement from the community is really starting to grow and pass sales are far ahead of where we expected. Much of the buzz is tied directly to the content that will be presented during the conference.
In all, there were be 42 breakout sessions with presenters from more than 20 companies, including representatives from Adobe, eBay, Facebook, HSBC, LinkedIn, Twitter and Yahoo!. We have started to feature interviews with some of the most compelling speakers on the Hadoop Summit website. Those posted thus far include:
The breakout sessions are broken down into four tracks, each aimed at providing valuable and educational content to meet the varied needs of the attendees. We recently featured interviews with each of the track chairs in order to provide some insight into the track sessions and the expected takeaways from each. The interviews are available on the Hadoop Summit website and also linked to below:
We also recently announced the initial set of speakers for the Lightning Round, which will take place during the first evening of the conference. Speakers will have 5 minutes to cover the topics that the community voted as the ones they wanted to learn about during Hadoop Summit.
The list of the initial 8 Lightning Round sessions is available here.
