January, February and March will be busy months for our technology evangelists. Pervasive DataRush Director of Product Management Davin Potts, Pervasive DataRush Chief Technologist Jim Falgout and Pervasive Software Chief Technology Officer Mike Hoskins will be speaking at major conferences over the next few weeks.
At the O’Reilly Strata Conference (www.strataconf.com/strata2011) in San Francisco, running from February 1-3, Davin’’s “Supercharge Development and Performance of Hadoop Applications” presentation will take place on February 2 at 2:30 p.m. PST in the Mission City B4 room. He will discuss how to get more done faster with high-performance MapReduce and expand the universe of Hadoop possibilities with tools to speed and simplify development and deployment of analytic applications, such as Pervasive DataRush™. Pervasive Software also is exhibiting at the Strata event—you can find us at booth 501.
For those in the Austin area, on January 29, Davin also will be speaking at DataDay Austin (www.datadayaustin.eventbrite.com). He will discuss “Reducing Complexity and Increasing Efficiency in the Land of Hadoop.” We hope you can join him.
Pervasive Chief Technologist Jim Falgout will be addressing the European Data Innovation Summit (www.europeanintegrationsummit2011.com) audience in London at the Hilton London Tower Bridge on February 2. Jim’s presentation will be “Best Practices in Building Custom Applications for Big Data.” He will describe how the dataflow-based Pervasive DataRush framework delivers massive built-in parallelism to power applications that automatically scale up to consume the full capacity of commodity multicore servers.
Jim also will be speaking at the KNIME User Group Meeting (www.knime.org/about/events/ugm-workshop-2011), being held in Zurich on February 28-March 4. Stay tuned for more details.
At the GigaOM Structure Big Data conference (http://event.gigaom.com/bigdata/) on March 23 at Pier Sixty in New York City, Mike Hoskins will be part of the Hadoop panel that will be gathering at 1:30 p.m. Mike will be discussing parallelism and Big Data. Mike is always a font of industry knowledge and an astute trend predictor (and entertaining to boot).
We look forward to seeing you—no matter the time zone--in the weeks ahead!
