I know the ASF don't like advertising on their mailing lists, but they have
a special exemption for conferences -especially their own
Having just returned from an excellent ApacheCon EU, where there was lots
of coverage on topics that would interest this list: Hadoop, Cassandra,
CloudStack, server-side web applications and others, I'd strongly recommend
attending this conference. It's not just the technical nature of the talks,
but the fact that you are in knee deep with the developers, where the
discussions can range from MR classloader issues to what happens when a
whale falls onto your datacentre (this had happened to 3% of the audience
at the HBase talk, so don't ignore it)
If you can get a talk submission on how you are using Hadoop in by Sunday
Evening, Nov 11, then you get the opportunity to have your applications
reviewed by the experts

Subject: ApacheCon NA: CFP final days & Early Bird registration open!
Hello everyone --
Two items of note regarding ApacheCon North America, taking place in
Portland, Oregon, the last week of February 2013.
1) Call for Presentations has been extended to Sunday, 11 November.
ApacheCon will kick off on 24 February with two days of pre-conference
trainings, BarCamp, and hackathon; the main conference + expo is 26-28
February, followed by post-conference sprints, workshops, and team building
events through 2 March.
This year's theme is "Open Source Community Leadership Drives
Enterprise-Grade Innovation", showcasing the diverse applications and
solutions made possible by Apache technologies.
We encourage submissions that demonstrate novel uses of Apache products and
how they are helping to shape the future, including proposals on technical,
business, and community matters for audiences at all levels from beginner
to expert. Demonstrations of real-world experience in solving specific
problems are particularly welcome. Submit your presentation and training
proposals at http://na.apachecon.com/cfp/
