Presentation: Beyond Hadoop Open Space

Join Jeff Magnusen, our speakers, and other attendees as we discuss more flexible distributed system management paradigms like YARN and new file systems based on SSD and memory! The Big Data world we now live in has expanded beyond the borders of Hadoop--it now includes several Interactive-speed OLAP engines, multiple machine learning platforms, a couple of columnar file formats, and many alternatives for both streaming and graph processing. Increasingly, sentences that begin with Hadoop often end with Spark. How are companies leveraging these new Big Data technologies? Join us and learn more!

What is Open Space?

Every day at QConSF, we’ll open space five times, once for each track. Open Space is a kind of unconference, a simple way to run productive meetings for 5 to 2000 or more people, and a powerful way to lead any kind of organization in everyday practice and extraordinary change.



Why are we doing Open Space?

We’re doing Open Space at QCon because we want this conference to be yours. At QCon, we learn from the best and share with the best. We come with passions and ideas that we want to share with each other. We want to connect with each other, create community around topics that we’re passionate about. We do that with Open Space.

How does Open Space work?

We open space, eager to dive deeper into one of the conference’s topics. We begin with nothing more than a roomful of great people and some paper and pens.

And the magic begins! We create an agenda of interesting session ideas. It’s simple: write the name of your idea on a piece of paper, announce it to your friends, and put it on the agenda.

We end up with a full agenda of interesting sessions.

We convene our sessions, sharing and creating new knowledge, and connecting with each other. We make new friends and invent new ideas.

What’s next?

Bring your passion and ideas to QCon Open Space! See you there!
