I just want to publish my updated slide deck from WJAX 2013 in Munich. I have integrated some real world use cases for showing Hadoop integration with Apache Camel and Talend Open Studio for Big Data.
In March 2013, I was at 33rd Degree – “A Conference for Java Masters”. I had two talks, including a new one: “You are not Facebook or Google? Why you should still care about Big Data”. It is a great talk to give an overview about big data, especially from a business perspective (paradigm shift, business value, challenges). However, I also talk about alternatives for big data from a technology perspective, mainly about the defacto standard Apache Hadoop, its ecosystem, distributions, and tooling (i.e. big data suites).
This week, I was at CamelOne 2012 in Boston, organized by FuseSource. Sessions covered several open source projects such as Apache Camel, Apache ServiceMix, Apache ActiveMQ, and Apache CXF. Attendees learned directly from their peers and other industry experts how open source can deliver measurable technical and business benefits to their organizations.
Today, I was at the “Atlassian Unite 2012 London”, a one-day event of Atlassian (http://www.atlassian.com/company/about/events/unite/2012). As the slogan says “Atlassian Users of Europe, Unite!”, it was a community event for users of Atlassian products. I guess about 200 people attended. Two other events will follow in Paris and Frankfurt.
The big question many of my buddies and colleagues ask me: What can you do at work with your iPad? Does it make any sense? Or do you just need it to be a fashionably, cool guy with a nice gadget?
