Big Data Workshop April 23, Mountain View, CA

I’m planning to be at Big Data Workshop, the first unconference on NoSQL and Big Data. If past events moderated by Kaliya Hamlin are any guide, it will be a great opportunity for everybody:

  • to explore together how the Big Data market will be coming together
  • to understand how the key technologies and projects work
  • what interfaces and interoperability standards are emerging and/or needed
  • how we can grow the overall market and make it easier for everybody to adopt these technologies for interesting new projects.

Arguably, without Internet Identity Workshop (also moderated by Kaliya) was the enabler for the stunning adoption rate over the past five years of OpenID, OAuth and related technologies (at last count, more than 1 billion enabled accounts). I hope history repeats itself here.

P.S. Feel free to corner me on InfoGrid, graph databases or any other subject. That’s the whole point of an unconference.
