It was a great year talking with the tech people of the Princeton area.



Deep Learning





Edge2AI in Barcelona


Enterprise IoT


HBase in CDP, FLaNK Stack and NiFi 1.10


At other events, I got to join some amazing colleagues spreading the word about cool open source technology.


The Cloudera Forum for CDP in MINNEAPOLIS. I got to help out on the amazing launch of Data in Motion on Cloudera.


I got to lead all-day workshops in NYC, Boston and Washington DC. I also got to talk about and do demos on NiFi and Phoenix for Cloudera Now online and some followup webinars.

I got to speak at a few awesome conferences this year.

Here are my slides from 2019:

A Decade End Wrap Up 2010-2019

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency blew up and then blew up. There's a few solid use cases though and the similarities between early Hadoop and Blockchain are interesting. You can't count this stuff out.

What's Coming in 2020

  • Cloud Enterprise Data Platforms
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Streaming with Flink, Kafka, NiFi
  • AI at the Edge with Microcontrollers and Small Devices
  • Voice Data In Queries
  • Event Handler as a Service (Automatic Kafka Message Reading)
  • More Powerful Parameter Based Modular Streaming
  • Cloud First For Big Data
  • Log Handling Moves to MiNiFi
  • Full AI At The Edge with Deployable Models
  • More Powerful Edge TPU/GPU/VPU
  • Kafka is everywhere
  • Open Source UI Driven Event Engines
  • FLaNK Stack gains popularity
