Jeff Kelly summarizing the Strata conference:
You know a technology is headed to the mainstream when the two “Elite” sponsors of the premier event designed to showcase that technology are Microsoft and EMC. Neither company is known for adopting and promoting emerging open source technologies, to put it mildly. But there they both were at Strata Conference, the event dedicated to open source Big Data approaches like Hadoop and NoSQL, topping the list of event sponsors. They were followed not far behind by fellow IT giants and Strata “Impact” sponsors IBM and Oracle.
Filing this under great events I’m missing while being 10000miles away.
