NoSQL devroom @ Fosdem 2010


Schedule is here!


This is the NoSQL devroom @ FOSDEM 2010 Wiki. 


The FOSDEM NOSQL devroom is over. Thanks to all who participated!

Conference videos can be found here!


What is a devroom? A devroom is a mini-conference-in-a-conference, the larger conference being FOSDEM 2010 to be held Saturday and Sunday 6-7/Feb 2010 in Brussels, Belgium. The NoSQL devroom takes place Sunday 7 February in room AW1.120 and the room has a capacity of about 70 attendants.


Who's gonna come? What can I expect? You? Your favourite speaker about your favourite nosql project? We're on our own, basically: we've got a room, logistics, and the unique FOSDEM atmosphere. The rest is up to us - you and me: we're in charge of setting up an agenda, publicizing the event, and make it happen. Best of all, FOSDEM is Free, as in gratis (and beer). And it's arguably the best geek conference in the world, and it's their tenth anniversary.


The schedule for the day can be found here. Thanks for all the speaking proposals - it was a tight fit to squeeze all those into a single day. 


Who am I


I'm Steven Noels - managing partner at Outerthought. I'm a Belgian guy running a software company, we build open source content management solutions. We got into this #nosql thing because our current CMS storage backend was in need for an update, and I started reading about these new fancy "databases", and encountered the same energy I remembered from my early XML and Apache Cocoon days. Out with the old, in with the new!  I've earned committer and Member badges at the Apache Software Foundation, and while my native language is Java, I'm eager to find out what happens on the other side of the fence. My main (positive) peeve with NoSQL is that it forces developers to rethink their storage layer, addressing the things that really matter: scale, prevail, and perform.




We'd also like to gauge attendee interest by means of a Twikilist.  So, if you plan to attend FOSDEM and the NoSQL devroom on Sunday, put your name down here (it could be so simple as a single tweet).
