HBase Clients at Seattle Scalability Meetup

"The blurry bald guy is me."

Yesterday I spoke at this month’s Seattle Scalability Meetup. My topic didn’t deviate too far from what was originally posted. Here are the slides. If you were able to join us yesterday, please take a moment to leave some feedback.

I was asked to speak on (extreme) short notice; filling in for a speaker who was filling in for the originally scheduled speaker. I had roughly 24 hours notice. Fortunately, the listed abstract was something I know a bit about, so I was able to come up with materials. As you might notice, I drew heavily from content from HBase In Action, particularly examples from Chapter 6.
