Heads Up: DevConTLV Summit 2014

This is the third year that DevConTLV will be taking place and by the looks of it, it will be a huge success. All the right ingredients are in place: a schedule packed with interesting talks (i.e. lots of NoSQL), speakers coming from all over the world, a lot of positive buzz in the local high-tech scene and persistent rumors about free food and drinks 🙂

Redis is a proud sponsor of the event and I’ll have the pleasure of giving a talk about… drum roll please… NoSQL and Redis! The talk’s working title is “Redis Use Patterns: An Introduction to the SQL Practitioner”. What I intend to deliver are some insights from our users’ that show how Redis is used, alongside an RDBMS, to address scale, performance and throughput challenges.

Two talks that I’m really looking forward to listening to are Javier Ramirez’s “API analytics with Redis and Bigquery” (duh!) and Ido Green’s “Google Cloud Platform – Scaling with a Smile” (did I mention that our service also runs there?), but in all likelihood I’ll be there the whole day and attend everything.

If you’re already coming to DevConTLV, it’d be great to meet and chat. If you’re still sitting on the fence, trust me and just come – it’s going to be real fun! Oh, and if you want to come but don’t have a ticket, why not try your luck with our raffle? Redis has some FREE tickets that we’ll be giving away to people who’ll tweet us with the #DevConTLV tag and explain why they need a ticket.

Questions? Feedback? Email or tweet me – I’m highly available 🙂
