Infinispan is well-represented again at Summit/JBW, as it was last year. I will be speaking on using Infinispan to solve a number of scalability and availability issues, including reducing database bottlenecks.
Emmanuel Bernard and Sanne Grinovero will be speaking on Hibernate OGM - an awesomely cool project to provide JPA-like access to Infinispan (details of the session available here).
Craig Bomba and Shane Johnson will talk about optimising Infinispan for performance and consistency based on lessons learned using Infinispan at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange, the world's largest options exchange.
Further, for the first time, we intend to run a hands-on lab on Infinispan, coordinated by Jim Tyrrell. An awesome chance to learn about the practical aspects of working with Infinispan, with core Infinispan engineers on hand to answer questions, etc. This sort of opportunity doesn't come about every day! :-)
JUDCon attendees too will get their fill of your favourite data grid with a talk titled Infinispan for Ninja Developers and one on Infinispan's new Map/Reduce capabilities. Fun, hands-on, developer-focused deep dives.
For a summary of what happened at JUDCon and Summit/JBW last year, check out this blog entry. It's still not too late to get tickets, you may even qualify for early-bird discounts if you hurry!
Hope to see you there.
