NoSQL Sessions at Silicon Valley Cloud Computing Meetup in January 2011

After Santa Claus has come and gone, NoSQL is coming to town! Come January 2011, I present the core NoSQL ideas, concepts, tools and technologies via a set of 4 day back-to-back sessions at the Silicon Valley Cloud Computing Meetup. The schedule is as follows:

Jan 24th (Monday): NoSQL Series – Part 1: Getting friendly with document databases
Jan 25th (Tuesday): NoSQL Series – Part 2: Nothing beats a distributed
Jan 26th (Wednesday): NoSQL Series – Part 3: HBase beyond the “Hello World!”
Jan 27th (Thursday): NoSQL Series – Part 4: Eventually it’s consistent

The venue is:
Fenwick & West
801 California St
Mountain View, CA 94041

Each day session starts at 7pm so you don’t have to miss work to join us for these sessions. Actually, wanted to make sure everyone was tired after a long day’s work so there were less questions :)

Each session is about an hour and a half long with a short break of 5 mins. or so in the middle. There is pizza, veggies and desserts to go along with the talk.

Thanks to Sebastian Stadil for organizing the Silicon Valley Cloud Computing Meetup and making these sessions possible. If you are into big data, cloud computing and web scale stuff and are in the bay area then this meetup is surely the one you should join.

All these talks will leverage my efforts towards writing Wiley’s Professional NoSQL (coming end of Q1/Q2 2011).

I am a technology entrepreneur, innovator, author and, as some say, a “thought leader”. I like to solve challenging computing problems, especially those that drive innovation. Being a polyglot programmer, I can program fluently in many languages, including Java, Python, C++, C, Ruby, ActionScript, JavaScript, Objective-C, Haskell, Scala, Clojure, PHP, Groovy, Lisp and Perl. I must admit that I like to learn programming languages and if there is a new interesting one coming, I wouldn’t be far behind getting to grips with it. Over the last many years I have built some cutting edge enterprise and consumer software applications, many of which have leveraged large data sets and the web based programming paradigms. This means I also know a lot about data bases and persistence. I am very conversant with relational databases, embedded databases, object databases, text based data and XML. Having leveraged web based programming paradigms, I have first hand experience with a lot of web development frameworks, including but not limited to Adobe Flex, Spring MVC, Rails, Grails and Django. Not to forget, I obviously have worked a lot with HTML, JS and CSS. My experience and interest are varied and diverse and range a wide spectrum of application development realms that include the server, the client and the middleware. Besides, programming, I am also deeply interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. This motivates me to bring my knowledge of applied mathematics, statistical modeling, artificial intelligence and sometimes simply data structures, to good use, when I build applications. A couple of domains like financial mathematics and scientific computing seem to have been good fit for such expertise. I am an ardent supporter of open source software and try and contribute to open source code bases and causes. I like the plurality and variety that software development offers; the choice of programming languages, the abundant availability of tools and libraries, the existence of multiple operating systems and the possibility of varied software development methodologies. As a member of the technology community, I am an active contributor to the ever evolving software development languages, methodologies and standards. I am an expert group member on a number of JCP (Java Community Process) specifications, for example JSRs 274, 283, 299, 301 & 312, and have been recognized as an Adobe Flex Champion.I run and organize a few community events like Flex Camp Wall Street, Show Ramp and Polyglot World. I bring together all my expertise in terms of services and products via my primary venture, Treasury of Ideas LLC, in which I play the role of a Managing Partner. Treasury of Ideas LLC, through its focus on innovation and value optimization, offers many best of the breed services and products and has incubated many ideas to help translate them to reality. Our clients range from large enterprises, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations to promising new startups. I write regularly in many technical journals and magazines, present in seminars and mentor developers and architects. I have authored a few books, including Advanced Flex 3 (friends of Ed/APress, 2008) and Professional BlazeDS (Wrox/Wiley, 2009) , and am in the process of authoring a few more. You can learn all about my books and public talks by browsing through the Publish & Present page at www.shanky.org.
