HBaseCon is around the Corner

May 5th, San Francisco

The third HBaseCon is happening in May 5th this year in San Francisco which is THE community event for Apache HBase. As with the previous years, this year the agenda is quite exciting.

There will be 4 tracks, Operations, Features and Internals, Ecosystem and Case Studies. The keynotes will include speakers from Cloudera who is the event host, Google BigTable team as a follow up to their ‘06 BigTable paper, Salesforce on their experience with HBase operations and use cases and Facebook on their strongly consistent multi data center replication scheme.

The ops track and use cases track will have a lot of good talks from experienced HBase users including Salesforce, IBM, Optimizely, Yahoo!, Xiaomi, Pinterest and RocketFuel, etc. Ecosystem track will cover some of the projects that will showcase HBase’s own rich ecosystem, including Apache Phoenix, Presto, OpenTSDB, Kiji etc. Lastly, the features and internals track will include talks on core, new features as well as a release managers panel.
