In-Memory Computing webinars

Things usually slowdown in summertime – but not when you’re dealing with in-memory computing
webinars <https://www.gridgain.com/resources/webinars>! If you missed them live, you
can always watch the video later.  Here’s a look at what’s coming up later this month.

>> Aug. 16: "Big Community" hosts technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri who will present:
"Introduction to Apache Ignite, a memory-centric distributed platform.” More info and to
register for this free webinar, click here <https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/2423316315303466241>.

And be sure not to miss… 
Because every webinar is recorded, there is a rich library of past webinars available for
playback anytime – with the slides also accessible for download. Here’s a peek at the
most recent:

In-Memory Computing Summits  

The only industry-wide events for in-memory computing users, the In-Memory Computing Summits
focus on IMC-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision
makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory
computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions.

The In-Memory Computing Summit Europe 2017 <https://imcsummit.org/eu/> was held in Amsterdam
June 20-21 with some 200 attendees from 24 countries gathering to hear keynotes and breakout
sessions on a broad range of in-memory computing topics. 

Experts from several companies – including, ING, Barclays, Misys, NetApp, Fujitsu and JacTravel
– presented topics spanning in-memory computing for financial services, web-scale applications,
and the Internet of Things to the state of non-volatile memory technology.

I invite you to explore those great talks on the IMC Summit’s YouTube channel <https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYquivPEF1s-Bna-5fuszwg>.
The videos include all of the conference talks, but here is a list of those featuring Apache
