By any measure, last week’s Hadoop Summit was a tremendous success. It brought together more than 2,200 people from throughout the Apache Hadoop ecosystem to share Hadoop knowledge, ideas, best practices, and interesting use cases. It was also a great chance for big data vendors to make announcements and demonstrate new and exciting solutions.
For those of you that missed the conference, or missed a particularly interesting presentation, we have some good news. Each of the 90+ keynotes and breakout sessions were recorded and we will be posting these sessions online at hadoopsummit.org over the coming days once the editing is completed.
In the meantime, I would like to draw your attention to TheCUBE videos featured on SiliconAngle TV. As conference organizers, we were very fortunate to be able to support the team from TheCUBE, including John Furrier (@furrier) and Jeff Kelly (@jeffreyfkelly). They did an outstanding job of streaming interviews with many of the industry thought leaders and providing some excellent insight into the conference happenings for those that could not attend. These sessions are all now available via their website.
We were fortunate to have a number of Hortonworks founders and executives featured in these interviews. Here are links to the various Hortonworks interviews:
Rob Bearden (CEO)
Ari Zilka (Chief Products Officer)
Eric Baldeschwieler (Co-Founder and CTO)
Shaun Connolly (VP Corporate Strategy)
Alan Gates (Co-Founder)
Owen O’Malley (Co-Founder)
Arun C. Murthy (Co-Founder)
John Kreisa (yours truly, VP of Marketing)
Thanks again to our friends from TheCUBE. We look forward to seeing you guys at future Hadoop Summit conferences.
