Every year at Hadoop Summit there’s a little un-conference, call the Birds of a Feather Sessions, or BoF for short. These are topical meetups that take place after the conference proceedings and are open to non-attendees. This year I helped organize the HBase BoF, along with Subash D’Souza.
The HBase BoFs are usually run as 90-minute meetups with short lightning talks
from folks who’s topics were not selected by the program committee and for
topics that are too short for a full 40 minute slot. Lightning talks are 15
minutes of slides with a few minutes for Q&A. We had a cancellation, so I
filled in with a talk a little last minute. I took the opportunity to organize
my thoughts around the
BlockCache, a la Blockcache 101, into a
presentation format. Here are the slides, let me know what you think.
