Stay Engaged!

This isn’t your typical virtual conference that inflicts death by PowerPoint. It’s highly interactive, including:

  • The ability to engage with speakers during their sessions.
  • Opportunities for 1:1 discussions with our engineers on topics introduced in the sessions
  • Dynamic discussions with — and even among — speakers in the Speakers Lounge, hosted by Peter Corless (ScyllaDB Director of Technical Advocacy)

There will also be contests, chances to connect with your peers from around the world, the announcement of this year’s ScyllaDB Innovation Award winners, and more.

Peter’s Picks

Speaking of Peter Corless, here are a few reasons why Peter is so excited about this year’s agenda.

“ScyllaDB Summit 2022 will offer awesome sessions for practitioners of every level of experience, and for data teams tackling every scale of problem. One customer use case you don’t want to miss is Hili Shtein from Amdocs. I won’t steal Hili’s thunder, but once you view his session, you’ll see why Amdocs is such a trusted partner to the world’s leading communications and media companies.

We also have a broad showing of ecosystem partners, from the very latest AWS EC2 instances perfect for running ScyllaDB, a demo of how to do multi-cloud deployments of ScyllaDB from SADA, and different takes of how to integrate ScyllaDB into event streaming architectures whether you use Confluent Kafka, StreamNative’s Pulsar, or Vectorized’s RedPanda.

You will also get a glimpse into the current state of ScyllaDB software engineering, discover our latest features and capabilities, plus get a glimmer of what’s to come over 2022 from our own executives and industry-leading developers.

Finally, if you’re a developer, you won’t want to miss Numberly’s talk on learning to use Rust ‘the hard way,’ plus then Piotr Sarna’s talk on the work going into our new shard-aware Rust driver, and how we’re planning to make your jobs easier and your throughputs even better in the days ahead.”
