A NOSQL Evening in Palo Alto

Mark Your Calendars!

Please join us on October 26 from 6 to 9:30pm for a very special NOSQL Evening, organized by InfiniteGraph (with additional help from Scality).

Tim Anglade (founder, A NOSQL Summer), hosts a 2-hour discussion and Q&A with representatives from some of the most prominent NOSQL vendors and projects. The topics will look back on the origins of the movement and its growing pains, discuss the current technological & business states, as well as look ahead to the opportunities for improvement and expansion.
So if you ever wanted to hear the lessons learned by an emerging tech industry, or wanted to have an inside look into the non-relational revolution, come join us for a unique evening at beautiful Dinah’s Garden Hotel, in Palo Alto, California.

    After the event I posted a NoSQL scenario on my blog, and have since posted detailed responses for Cassandra and MongoDB. Others to come...

    I expected more discussion about technology, and less second-guessing Gartner on the size of the NoSQL database market, and related inter-vendor oneupmanship. Earlier posting of the agenda and format would have made it clearer this was a business forum, not a technology forum.

    Excellent all around. Was a great networking event. The panelists were great. Tim did a really great job MC'ing the event. I was extremely happy I made the choice to fly up and attend.

    The meetup was excellent. It was a great opportunity to learn from many vendors and the hosts (Objectivity/InfiniteGraph) went out of their way to treat us well.

    Moderator could have done a better job outlining the objective of the discussion, and distributing questions around the room.

    There was an assumption that you were familiar with all the solutions, perhaps let each vendor give 2 minutes on their product or add this info to a handout.

    I like the panel approach, verses one speaker

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
