Today and today only was HBaseCon 2015. This was my first HBaseCon event. Glad I could have attended. There were a number of very nice projects and learning opportunities.
One of the projects I am really excited about is Zen from Pintrest. Unfortunately, I am yet to find it on the net. So they must not have opened sourced it. They built a graph API on top ofÂ HBase. They laid out enough of the underlying tables to support the design. I think with a bit of work, one can implement the API. But that will be some work. This is actually a project I can start using soon.
Another project that looks really interesting too is Apache Phoenix. This is an Intel initiated project to do SQL like syntax on HBase. I didn’t get to play with it, but it looks pretty cool.
There was a presentation on tuning the GCG1 for HBase, but I don’t pay too much attention. I was busying updating my cases at work. Then I had to leave early to catch the train.
There wereÂ some other projects of interest. But like all conferences, there are sessions thatÂ requires you to have a few clones. Without clones, you just have to pick one.
