Conference Season 2012: Berlin Buzzwords & NoSQL

By David Knight |

Berlin Web Week may be drawing to a close, but there are a couple more cool events to look forward to – one here in the capital and one in Cologne. Urania Berlin will play host to Buzzwords Berlin, a conference for developers and users of open source projects, on June 4 and 5.

NoSQL matters 2012, meanwhile, will look at the world of databases the week before, on May 29 and 30.

The third edition of Buzzwords will focus on topics including scalable search, data analysis in the cloud and NoSQL databases. The aim is to bring together developers, analysts and researchers to work on innovative technologies for analysis and storage as well as searching through large amounts of digital data.

You can check out the two-day program here, and tickets cost €350 which includes wifi and catering. There is a 15 percent discount on group tickets for between five and 15 people.

NoSQL matters will focus on databases and promises to give “non-relational database solutions the stage time they deserve.” More than 30 experts will be on hand to give insight into the latest database trends and innovation as well as bundling the necessary information into handy packages for startups and developers.

Among the speakers will be Couchbase founder Jan Lehnardt and Olaf Bbachmann of Google, and the subjects being addressed will include which databases fits which business model, how to maximise database performance and reliability, and the flexibility and security of NoSQL.
