GridGain/Apache® Ignite™ community update (Issue 5)

In-Memory Computing Summit North AmericaGridGain just wrapped up another successful In-Memory Computing (IMC) Summit North America. The conference – the only industry-wide event for in-memory computing users – ran Oct. 24-25 near San Francisco and attracted some 300 data-science professionals from around the world. 

The keynotes were recorded and will be available on the IMC Summit's YouTube channel in the next couple of days. All of the sessions were also recorded, but without video. However (and perhaps even better), they will also be available for playback along with the deck. More like a screencast. I encourage you to take a look at the agenda and then decide which sessions are of the most interest. 

Over the next couple of weeks, GridGain will host or participate in the following conferences, webinars and meetups:


  • Big Data London 2017, Nov. 15-16 – GridGain will be in booth #227 to discuss the need for in-memory computing for real-time big data applications.
