This meetup focuses on Scalability and technologies to enable handling large amounts of data: Hadoop, HBase, distributed NoSQL databases, blockchain and more!

There's not only a focus on technology, but also everything surrounding it including operations, management, business use cases, and more.

We've had great success in the past, and are growing quickly! Previous guests were from Twitter, LinkedIn, Amazon, Microsoft, Hyperledger, 10gen/MongoDB, and more.

This month's guests:

Adron Hall, Technology Craftsman at Pelotech, and SeaScale Organizer.
