HBaseCon2012, Scaling GIS in 3 Acts, Lightning Edition


HBasecon2012, the first of it’s kind, happened on Wednesday. I had the honor of presenting a lightning talk at the end of one of the Applications tracks. I shared a little of what I’ve learned over the last couple months in the new-to-me domain of GIS. I think the talk went well, despite my nerves, because I had many good questions from the audience. I look forward to continuing the work and providing more details the next time around.

Thanks again to all the organizers; a 600-person event is not easy to coordinate. HBase sure has come a long way :)
