The first Apache Cassandra Summit
Tuesday, August 10, 2010
Mission Bay Conference Center, SF
The Mission Bay Conference Center is one of San Francisco's premier venues for tech events. Located just south of downtown San Francisco, and convenient to Oakland and Berkeley, the Center is located within blocks of both BART and Caltrain. If you are visiting from out of town, you won't need to rent a car. The Center has ample bandwidth for transferring Big Data, and can easily handle wireless for hundreds.
Your hosts will be providing lunch and beverage service throughout the day.
Scheduled talks include:
The Present and Future of Cassandra.
Jonathan Ellis - Co-founder, Riptano, and Apache Cassandra Project lead.
Jonathan will share some of the considerations for the long-term roadmap. This is an opportunity to get an extended view beyond the changelog.
Understanding Cassandra's Data Model.
Eben Hewitt - Director of Application Architecture at Choice Hotels International and author of the upcoming book Cassandra: The Definitive Guide.
Partners in Crime: Cassandra Analytics and ETL with Hadoop
Stu Hood (@stuhood) is the Technical Lead for the Cloud Shared Services team at Rackspace.
This talk will provide a broad overview of existing integration between Hadoop and Cassandra, including direct Hadoop API usage, Apache Pig support, and Hadoop Streaming support. It will then dive deeper into example components of an extract, transform load (ETL) workflow which loads, summarizes and analyzes datasets.
