Presentation: Tweet"The Aarhus 6"
We will be using the analogy of a courtroom battle for this presentation and the room will be laid out in a courtroom style layout with the case being presented:
The people vs The Aarhus 6 (6 of the biggest names in NOSQL and NEWSQL technologies or the accussed as we like to call them!)
Accused? Yes the terminolgy is a bit strong but in the name of role playing they are accussed of mis-informing the general public with outlandish claims and not warning of potential "tradeoffs" the public may encounter when using these products. For example, it may not be super fast, highly scalable or even easy to use in your environment but they said it was!
The panel will be moderated by Kresten Krab Thorup.
However, we encourage (with a free beer for each question asked) as much audience participation as possible! We ran a similar track in Copenhagen in May and the audience actually asked most of the tough questions! So bring a sharp wit to this session.
Its then up to the Judge to make sure the questions are asked and answered in a fair and open manner. BTW The judges decision is final!
So who is on the panel:
Matt Heitzenroder (Basho), Chris Anderson (Couchbase), Jim Webber (Neo4J), Alvin Richards (10gen/MongoDB), Matt Dennis (Datastax), Martin Fowler ()
