Late last week, several members of the Gnip team attended the 2011 Glue Conference, including Gnip’s very own CEO Jud Valeski, who delivered a keynote presentation on High-Volume, Realtime Data Stream Handling. Check out Audrey Watters’ article, Gnip CEO on the Challenges of Handling the Real-Time, Big Data Firehose on ReadWriteCloud, it does a great job of summing up Jud’s presentation.
We were thrilled to once again sponsor such an innovative and informative event dedicated to the bits and pieces, APIs and metadata, standards, and connectors that help “glue” together the applications of the web. We would like to congratulate Eric Norlin (@defrag) and team for putting on a great conference.
It was exciting to have seen several of our customers and partners at the conference, including ReportGrid, a realtime analytics startup, who used Gnip data to power their demo at the conference. For those of you that we met at the conference, it was a pleasure! For those of you that we missed, give us a call or shoot us an email, we would love to hear from you. See you next year at the 2012 Glue Conference!
