Cloudera will be hosting HBaseCon 2013 in San Francisco on June 13 at the Marriott Marquis, San Francisco. HBaseCon 2013 will be supported by event sponsors Continuuity, MapR and WibiData; community sponsor Apache Software Foundation; and media sponsors O'Reilly Media and Manning Publications. HBaseCon is for Apache HBase users, contributors, administrators and application developers. In addition to exploring numerous technical talks across four tracks, attendees can meet and network at this annual gathering of HBase committers and enthusiasts. The HBaseCon Program Committee includes HBase contributors representing companies from across the community, including Cloudera, Explorys, Facebook, Hortonworks, Intel, Twitter and Salesforce.
"HBase has become an integral part of the Apache Hadoop stack, helping to make real-time querying possible," said Michael Stack, Cloudera Engineer and HBase Project Chair at the Apache Software Foundation.
The HBaseCon Program Committee invites all members of the HBase community to submit speaking abstracts for sessions pertaining to HBase internals and futures, best practices for running HBase in production, HBase use cases and applications and how to contribute to HBase. The call for speakers is open through April 1, 2013.
"With a number of our employees committed to making contributions to the Apache HBase project, Cloudera is invested in evolving the platform to make it broadly adoptable for real-time management of Big Data," said Doug Cutting, Chief Architect at Cloudera and Chairman of the Apache Software Foundation.
