Since our Call for Submissions closed in February, our program committee have been hard at work evaluating the record number of submissions we received this year. The quality of proposals this year was amazing, and we are very happy to announce the first confirmed speakers for Berlin Buzzwords 2019.
Our Keynote speakers:
Griselda Cuevas - Playing fair in the Open Source World
For the latest episode of our conversation series Nina spoke to Berlin Buzzwords co-founder Simon Willnauer.
As well as his involvement in Berlin Buzzwords Simon is also a co-founder of Elastic. He is an Apache Lucene core committer and Apache Software Foundation Member. He has been involved with Apache Lucene since 2006 and has contributed to several other open source projects within and outside the Apache Software Foundation.
We are thrilled to announce Griselda Cuevas as our second keynote speaker!
The call for submissions for Berlin Buzzwords 2019 has ended with a new record! We are really happy to announce that we have received almost 150 abstracts! We would like to thank everyone for participating and helping us make history and celebrate out 10th edition.
We want Berlin Buzzwords to be as accessible as possible for everyone. We know that having children can often make attending conferences a bit of a headache, as finding childcare in a new city can be confusing and difficult. That's why we have decided to partner with Holiday Sitters to give you the opportunity to enjoy the conference and know your child or your children are in good hands.
We are thrilled to announce our first keynote speaker for Berlin Buzzwords 2019! Our co-founder Isabel Drost-Fromm will open the 10th edition and celebrate this special occasion with us.
The Berlin Buzzwords 2019 call for Submissions is now open! We believe in collaboration, participation, and the exchange of ideas. That's why we encourage all Big Data Open Source enthusiasts to submit ideas for talks, workshops, and discussions on Large Data Processing, NoSQL, IR/Search, AI/Machine Learning, Data Science or related topics.
To encourage everyone interested in participating in this years 10th Berlin Buzzwords, we thought we would share with you some advice and an offer of help from Steve Loughran. Steve was on our program committee for many years and is an expert on getting your abstract ready.
With every new submission that comes in we are getting more and more excited for the upcoming 10th edition of Berlin Buzzwords. We want to make your Berlin Buzzwords experience better than ever so we have asked some expert speakers to share their experience talking on stage.
We are happy to share with you a conversation with Ellen Friedman. Ellen is Principal Technologist with MapR, a speaker and an author, and is currently writing mainly about big data topics. She is a committer for the Apache Drill and Apache Mahout projects. We are also very happy to have Ellen as one of the newest members of our program committee.
In the fourth conversation of our Conversations with Berlin Buzzwords series Nina talks to Uwe Schindler. Uwe is a committer and PMC member of Apache Lucene and Solr.
For the third conversation in our Conversations with Berlin Buzzwords series Nina chatted with Ted Dunning. Among many other things Ted is the VP of Incubator at Apache Software foundation as well as member of the Board of Directors at Apache and mentor on many recent projects.
