After the call for papers ended we counted all submissions ending up with an impressive number of 60 high quality presentations submitted by awesome speakers in total. As we have planned for two days with two tracks each day, during the last two weeks Jan Lehnardt, Simon Willnauer and myself had a very hard time squeezing as much time as possible out of the available days.

Today we proudly present the Berlin Buzzwords talks and presentations. As promised there are tracks specific to the three tags search, store and scale. We have a fantastic mixture of developers and users of open source software projects that make scaling data processing today possible. There is Steve Loughran, Aaron Kimball and Stefan Groschupf from the Apache Hadoop community. We have Grant Ingersoll, Robert Muir and Simon Willnauer from the Lucene community. For those interested in NoSQL databases there is Mathias Stearn from MongoDB, Jan Lehnardt from CouchDB and Eric Evans, the guy who coined the term NoSQL one year ago.

The schedule is available online at:

A complete list of all speakers and talks is available online as well.
