Subject Berlin Buzzwords 2011

Hey all,

please excuse the spam, but I think some folks here might be interested :)

BerlinBuzzwords 2011 is close, less than 30 days left until the big Search,
Store and Scale opensource crowd is gathering in Berlin on June 6th/7th.

The conference again focuses on the topics search, data analysis and NoSQL. It
is to take place on June 6/7th 2011 in Berlin.

We are looking forward to two awesome keynote speakers who shaped the world of
open source data analysis: Doug Cutting, founder of Apache Lucene and Hadoop)
as well as Ted Dunning (Chief Application Architect at MapR Technologies and
active developer at Apache Hadoop and Mahout).

We are amazed by the amount and quality of the talk submissions we got. As a
result this year we have added one more track to the main conference. If you
haven't done so already, make sure to book your ticket now - early bird
tickets are already sold out since April 7th and there might not be many
tickets left.

As we would like to give visitors of our main conference a reason to stay in
town for the whole week, we have been talking to local co-working spaces and
companies asking them for free space and WiFi to host Hackathons right after
the main conference - that is on June 8th through 10th.

If you would like to gather with fellow developers and users of your project,
fix bugs together, hack on new features or give users a hands-on introduction
to your tools, please submit your workshop proposal to our wiki:

Please note that slots are assigned on a first come first serve basis. We are
doing our best to get you connected, however space is limited.

The deal is simple: We get you in touch with a conference room provider. Your
event gets promoted in our schedule. Co-Ordination however is completely up to
you: Make sure to provide an interesting abstract, provide a Hackathon
registration area - see the Barcamp page for a good example:

Attending Hackathons requires a Berlin Buzzwords ticket and (then free)
registration at the Hackathon in question.

See you all in Berlin :)
