Berlin Buzzwords 2017 is now over, and it was great! We have seen over 60 talks, welcomed more than 50 international speakers, had inspiring discusisons, met old friends and made new ones, gained valuable insights and enjoyed a great conference with amazing coffee!
We're happy to announce that in 2018 together with Isabel Drost-Fromm and Stefan Rudnitzki we'll be organizing a conference about governance, collaboration and community within the open source space.
There have been a few changes in the conference program, and we would like to provide a quick overview to make it clear.
Modern businesses have data at their core, and this data is changing continuously. How can we harness this torrent of information in real-time? The answer is stream processing, and the technology that has since become the core platform for streaming data is Apache Kafka.
It is often said that the world is not changing, but this is not true when it comes to data. The fact is, it has already changed. From the ‘Big Four’ accounting firms to the biggest enterprises in the world, all have massive ‘data labs’ or data analytics expertise.
Knowing your users’ preferences and behavior could help in optimizing the user’s E-journey by improving search relevancy and presenting relevant products. One way to leverage those preferences is to calculate a passive user profile based on the user’s interactions such as ad views and searches.
This year Berlin Buzzwords features multiple talks on storing, processing, streaming and searchability of large amounts of digital data, ranging from beginner-friendly sessions to in-depth technical presentations. For everyone who is at Berlin Buzzwords for the first time, you can find our highlights below, but you'd better take your time to check out the full conference agenda:
On and around Berlin Buzzwords we have organized meetups and hackathons for you to get involved, make things happen and work on high quality and deep technical content. Besides the annual Barcamp on Sunday we offer attendees the possibility to participate in meetups, workshops and hackathons for an intense and focused insight into their favorite topics.
