Subject Next-generation Cassandra Conference, June 13, Austin TX
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2014 21:38:54 GMT
I'm putting together a conference for Cassandra committers, driver
authors, and serious not-yet- committers.  Space is limited to 30, so
I'm really sincere about this not competing with the Cassandra Summit
[1] as a user-level event.

The format will be a single track of 40 minute talks, with 20 minutes
of open discussion after each.  Topics could include things like

- Implementing alternative compaction strategies
- Migrating memtables off-heap
- Adding user-defined types to Cassandra drivers
- RAMP transactions
- Server support for top-K queries
- etc.

DataStax will provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner from local
restaurants [2].  The schedule will also include two thirty minute breaks
during the day to provide opportunities for unstructured discussion.
We expect that one of the main benefits of attendance will be the
opportunity to visit and network with your peers this way.

Venue and combined CFP/registration info are at
http://learn.datastax.com/Next-GenerationCassandraConference.html.
It's a bit spartan but it should get the job done.

[2] I think we're actually contractually obligated to buy some food
from the hotel.  I'll minimize this to the extent possible.
