Because every webinar is recorded, there is a rich library of past webinars available for playback anytime – with the slides also accessible for download. Here’s a peek at the most recent:

In-Memory Computing Summits  

The only industry-wide events for in-memory computing users, the In-Memory Computing Summits focus on IMC-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions.

The In-Memory Computing Summit Europe 2017 was held in Amsterdam June 20-21 with some 200 attendees from 24 countries gathering to hear keynotes and breakout sessions on a broad range of in-memory computing topics. 

Experts from several companies – including, ING, Barclays, Misys, NetApp, Fujitsu and JacTravel – presented topics spanning in-memory computing for financial services, web-scale applications, and the Internet of Things to the state of non-volatile memory technology.

I invite you to explore those great talks on the IMC Summit’s YouTube channel. The videos include all of the conference talks, but here is a list of those featuring Apache Ignite:

In related news, the third-annual In-Memory Computing Summit North America is Oct. 24-25 in South San Francisco. Details here. The agenda is being put together now by the conference committee. It should be available by the next issue.
