It's that time of year for the annual conversation between The New Builders and ODPi, the Linux Foundation project standardizing the big data ecosystem around Apache™ Hadoop®.

We met up with ODPi VP of Technology Roman Shoposhnik at ApacheCon 2017 in Miami, building on the interview we conducted last year with ODPi Director John Mertic in Vancouver.

Roman shares how he sets a fair technical agenda for ODPi as VP of Technology (5:30), ODPi's moves toward tighter integration with ASF (7:55), why he thinks of ODPi as the "commercial yin" to the "open source yang" of the Apache Bigtop project that he founded (11:25), and why IoT's prominence today reminds him of Big Data a decade ago (13:10).

The data layer doesn't always get the top billing it deserves in app development circles. To shine a light on the databases that power today's top apps, Compose is hosting its second annual DataLayer event on Wednesday, May 17 at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin.

To preview DataLayer, we're joined by Thom Crowe (@thomcrowe) from Compose, who shares a bit about what to expect at DataLayer - from a range of data services to the power of polyglot persistence. He also previews the keynote by Honeycomb's Charity Majors, "Observability and the Glorious Future" (3:23).

Then, we're joined by a DataLayer 2017 speaker, Meteor's Jonas Helfer (@helferjs), who previews his talk, "Joins Across Databases with GraphQL," and shares a little about his work with Apollo and GraphQL (11:53).

Register for DataLayer today and enter promo code "IBM" at checkout to receive a discount on your ticket.
