PhoenixCon June 18th, 2018 - Joseph McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA

Rooms 210 AE and 210 BF


PhoenixCon (founded in 2016) is the leading event covering Apache Phoenix. PhoenixCon is the best venue in which to learn something new or share real-life stories about Phoenix.

This year, PhoenixCon will take place on the Monday of the DataWorks Summit San Jose 2018 at the San Jose Convention Center. Of note, HBaseCon will be held in the same venue on the same day. We will make it so that attendees will be able to pass freely between the two events. As the DataWorks Summit is happening this same week, attendees are encouraged to consider attending all events!

Apache Phoenix enables OLTP and operational analytics in Hadoop for low latency applications by combining the power of standard SQL and JDBC APIs with the flexibility of late-bound, schema-on-read capabilities from the HBase world. Its community works independently within the ASF to provide their respective software under the permissive Apache license.
