Dr. Bob Sutor, vice president, Open Systems and Linux, IBM Software Group, will deliver a keynote on "Data, Languages, and Problems" at ApacheCon, the official user conference of The Apache Software Foundation.
According to Sutor, a great deal of research work over the next decade will be driven by those seeking to solve complex problems employing the cloud, multicore processors, distributed data, business analytics, and mobile computing. In this talk, he will discuss some past approaches but also look at work being done in the labs on languages like X10 that extend the value of Java through parallelism, technologies that drive cross-stack interoperability, and approaches to handling and analyzing both structured and unstructured data.
Sutor will deliver his keynote at ApacheCon on Friday, November 5, at 12:30 pm.
Additional ApacheCon keynotes will be presented by Dana Blankenhorn, Linux and open source writer for ZDNet; and by Daniel Crichton, program manager and principal computer scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
ApacheCon will feature dozens of technical, business, and community-focused sessions at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. The 2010 conference, to be held at the Westin Peachtree in Atlanta, November 1-5, will include highly relevant, professionally-directed presentations that demonstrate specific problems and real-world solutions.
