hack/reduce - Mike Stonebraker Live! Navigating the Database Universe

When: Wed January 23, 2013 6:00 pm

Organization: hack/reduce

Location: hack/reduce, 275 3rd St., Cambridge, MA 02142

Website: http://www.hackreduce.org/ai1ec_event/mike-stonebraker-live-navigating-the-database-universe/

Join VoltDB at hack/reduce in Cambridge on Wednesday, January 23rd and become one with VoltDB and the Zen of data velocity. 

VoltDB’s Dr. Michael Stonebraker -- of MIT, UC Berkeley, and Ingres and Postgres fame -- will be there to present the founding principles of solving modern data-velocity problems: “Data is growing faster than hard drives,” “Move the computation to the data, never move the data to the computation,” “Bet on main memory because there's no other way to go fast,” and “Run transactions to completion, and you eliminate locking and multithreading,” are central to his beliefs.

Not-so-coincidentally, they’re also central concepts of VoltDB.

Adding to the lessons learned throughout Dr. Stonebraker’s 40-year career in database research will be VoltDB CEO Bruce Reading and VP of Engineering John Piekos. These guys know the market, and they’ll share insights on some of the hottest opportunities out there today, where solving data velocity problems is big business. They’ll also get you up to speed on VoltDB because it’s good to have a practical way to apply all this know-how, after all. And, by the way, we'll be serving attendees some of the best BBQ and brew in the city!

We can only cram so many people into hack/reduce, so space is limited. Register today, and we’ll see you in Cambridge!
