In order to enliven the breaks between sessions talks, we brought a riddle, inviting all attendees to solve it.

On 12-13 May 2017,  the 6th edition of UX Spain took place. If there was a scale enabling us to measure when an event has reached its maturity, UX Spain would be, after this edition, at the top. Once again, an impeccable organization, outstanding speakers with juicy content and two consecutive days as a trending topic on Twitter have turned UXSpain into a reference in the Design and UX sector. Well done to the organizers!

On the 17th and 18th of November, I attended the Big Data Spain conference. It was my first time attending this type of events, and it was an excellent opportunity to meet experts in the fields and attend high-quality talks. So I decided to write this post to share a few of the presented slides and ideas.

Ps: Please excuse the quality of some slides/pictures, they were all taken by my phone camera!

First, Congrats to Big Data Spain on being the second biggest Big Data conference in Europe, right after O’Reilly Strata. This year’s edition also
had around 50% increase than last year’s!

Now let’s dig into the details…

MesosCon Europe was held in Amsterdam from August 31 to September 2 and a small representation of Stratio’s crew was over there.

Benjamin Hindman’s opening keynote

Mesosphere’s Co-Founder & Chief Architect Benjamin Hindman broke the ice with the first keynote.

Alberto Rodriguez and Andrés Macarrilla at MesosCon Europe

After talking about the mesos ecosystem’s growth within the last months, he explained the nested containerization model and the improvements in the Mesos resource allocation. He then introduced an African nonprofit organization called praekelt.org dedicated to using mobile technology to improve the lives of people living in poverty. A representative from the NGO explained how mesos and DC/OS are a perfect fit for its cluster provisioning. The NGO has to run quite a few clusters where 80% of the setup is identical for each cluster and the remaining 20% is different. They therefore get the most out of mesos and DC/OS by deploying these distinctive features separately. The representative was asked what the Mesos’ biggest deficiency is nowadays. He replied that they were struggling to find a persistence layer that fits their current needs (he pointed out that they are currently using GlusterFS as their persistence backend).
