Hadoop World 2014 New York from a developer’s point of view

This year’s edition of Strata Hadoop World held in New York was humongous, 16 workshops, over 20 keynotes, over 130 talks and most importantly over 5000 attendees! This massive crowd wouldn’t fit in Hilton hotel where the previous edition was held. That is why organizers had to move the conference to Javits Conference Center - an enormous building in which Big Data believers occupied just one sector. The fact that the European edition of Hadoop Summit experienced exactly the same transition (the third edition is going to be held in a bigger location in Brussels) gives pleasant assurance that Big Data technologies are still a hot topic and that Big Data Community grows at a stable pace.
